Health officials say one more person has died from COVID-19 and 10 have tested positive in British Columbia. In a joint statement, Health Minister Adrian Dix and provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry say the new figures bring the total confirmed cases to 2,878.
The new total includes a data correction of one case from yesterday's report.
Dix and Henry say there are 159 active cases in the province and 2,545 people who tested positive have recovered.
The First Nations Health Authority announced today that 87 First Nations individuals have tested positive for COVID-19, a rate below the provincial average.
