BC records 6 new COVID-19 related deaths and 317 new cases since Friday

On Monday, health officials presented COVID-19 information recorded over the past three days in BC.

During that time, there were 137 cases recorded between Friday and Saturday, followed by 119 cases identified from Saturday to Sunday and another 61 cases from Sunday to Monday.

Dr. Bonnie Henry also reported six deaths related to the coronavirus have been recorded since Friday.

Five of the people who died were elderly residents in longer term care homes in the Fraser Valley and Vancouver Coastal Health regions.

The other death happened in the Northern Health region, a first for that health region.

The number of people in hospital has risen to 58, a jump of nine since Friday, with 16 of those patients were in critical or intensive care.

Henry also assured that schools are safe places to be during the heavy wildfire smoke and COVID-19 after the BC Teachers' Federation expressed concern about the potential ill effects.

The union expressed concern that teachers were being told to keep classroom windows shut to keep out the smoke when last week they were told to keep windows open to improve classroom ventilation.
