Nov 10, 2022

COVID-19 hospitalizations and the number of patients in critical care have remained stable from a week ago, according to the latest numbers from the B.C. Centre for Disease Control.

The BCCDC reported 290 people hospitalized with the disease on Thursday, up from 286 a week ago. The province’s dashboard shows 26 people in the ICU, down from 27 last Thursday.

In the week leading up to Nov. 5, 20 new deaths were reported among people who tested positive for the coronavirus within the previous 30 days. That brings the number of deaths potentially linked to the disease to 4,552.

That same week, 407 new cases of COVID-19 were reported by B.C. labs, down around 16 per cent from the week before.

Case totals are believed to be significant underestimates of the true spread of the disease because the centre only counts PCR tests in its report, which are currently inaccessible to the majority of British Columbians.
