The number of people in hospital with COVID-19 continued to decline across B.C. in 2023, but the province reported 30 more deaths believed to be linked to the virus in a weekly update provided by the B.C. Centre for Disease Control.

On Thursday, the BCCDC said there were 204 people hospitalized with the coronavirus, down just over 10 per cent from the week prior, and 23 people in critical care, an increase of one from the preceding week.

The province says as of Jan. 28, there were 30 new deaths reported among people who had tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 30 days.

Since the beginning of the pandemic, 5,106 people in B.C. are believed to have died of COVID-related causes.

The number of deaths, hospitalizations and reported COVID-19 cases are often revised retroactively, as the latest data from regional health authorities is submitted to the BCCDC and the provincial Health Ministry.
