BC's provincial health officer is reporting 53 new cases of COVID-19 and one new death in the Fraser Health region.

Doctor Bonnie Henry says there are now one thousand and 68 cases in the province, with a total of 25 deaths.

Henry says 142 people are hospitalized and 67 of them are in intensive care.

Two of the new cases are at the long term care centre in North Vancouver where many of the province's fatalities have occurred but Henry says she hopes strict new control measures are now beginning to take effect.
