On the first day of fall, B.C. sees fewest people in hospital with COVID-19 in months – CTV

Sept. 23, 2022

The number of people with COVID-19 in B.C. hospitals is the lowest it’s been since early July, according to the latest update from the B.C. Centre for Disease Control.

There were 305 people in hospital with the disease as of Thursday – which is the autumnal equinox and the first official day of fall. Officials have been warning for months that the coronavirus is likely to spread more widely in the fall and winter.

The number of patients in hospital reported by the BCCDC each week includes both those with serious cases of COVID-19 requiring medical attention and those who are hospitalized for other reasons and test positive for COVID incidentally.

Since the province began counting hospitalizations using this “hospital census” model, there have been as many as 985 people in hospital with the coronavirus and as few as 255.
