B.C. Measures Appear To Have Slowed The Increase In Covid-19: Health Officer

The Canadian Press, 27 Mar, 2020

    VICTORIA - British Columbia's provincial health officer says she's starting to see "glimmers of hope" in the fight against COVID-19 with an apparent flattening in the number of cases.

     

    The province released it's "worst-case scenario" data today that it will use for planning purposes, while cautioning the data is not a prediction.

     

    Current figures show B.C. is closer to following the trajectory of South Korea, and Dr. Bonnie Henry says social distancing measures are beginning to have a positive impact.

     

    Henry says the increase in the number of COVID-19 cases has levelled off a bit and that needs to continue and to go down.

     

    If the trajectory stays on track, Henry says that would allow B.C. to maintain its health-care system while providing for both COVID-19 patients and those who need other types of health care.

     

    Health Minister Adrian Dix says if cases reached a level similar to those in northern Italy, additional beds would be set up in the community to meet the demand.
