609 new cases, 6 deaths

The provincial government has announced 609 new coronavirus cases, including 92 in the Interior Health region.

The new cases bring B.C.’s total since the pandemic began to 203,582, although just 4,748 remain active. Of the active cases, 422 individuals are currently in hospital and 157 are in intensive care.

There are now 642 active cases in the Interior Health region where 63 people are hospitalized, 38 of whom are in intensive care. The jump in IH region hospitalizations is a result of IH correcting a previous undercount.

In the past 24 hours, six new deaths have been reported, for a total of 2,137. None of those deaths were in Interior Health.
