‘Additional measures’ may be coming to slow COVID spread in northern B.C., says Henry – CBC

Province had to contract two planes to transport critical patients south over Thanksgiving weekend

Oct 12, 2021

Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry said she is considering placing additional restrictions on communities in northern B.C. where COVID-19 is spreading, in an effort to reduce strain on health-care workers in the region.

So far, the province has had to transfer 55 critical care patients out of the Northern Health region to hospitals in the Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island in order to keep beds in the north free, said Health Minister Adrian Dix at a news conference Tuesday.

Of those 55, he said, 43 were COVID-19 positive and 42 were not fully vaccinated. Fourteen of the transfers occurred over the Thanksgiving long weekend and the province had to contract two private aircraft in order to keep up with demand.

“The situation … is extremely serious,” he said. “Our staff [in northern hospitals] are doing simply epic work.”
