VANCOUVER — The number of COVID-19 cases recorded daily in British Columbia could approach record levels by late September under a “moderate transmission” scenario, according to new modelling data presented Tuesday.

One projection shared by provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry indicated the number of reported COVID-19 cases could reach approximately 1,200 per day by Sept 27, depending on transmission and vaccination rates.

B.C.’s record for the most cases announced in a single day was 1,293 on April 18.

Under the most optimistic scenario presented, daily case numbers would gradually decrease below 500 per day in the middle of the month. Over the last week, the province has recorded an average of 683 cases daily.
