The number of people in hospital with COVID-19 dropped slightly over the past seven days, according to the latest numbers from the B.C. Centre for Disease Control.

There are 314 people in hospital with COVID-19 as of Thursday, according to the BCCDC, a drop of three per cent from the week before.

Hospitalizations from COVID-19 have been on a general downward trend since late July.

Twenty-three patients are in critical care, up one from last Thursday.

The province also reported 16 more deaths between Sept. 4 and 10, bringing the total to 4,216.

The government’s weekly numbers, which it says are preliminary, are often changed retroactively due to delays in the count and the new way the province measures weekly cases, hospitalizations and deaths.
