Three more cases of the novel coronavirus have been confirmed in British Columbia, bringing the total of people infected to 12 in the province.

Dr. Bonnie Henry, the provincial health officer, says the two women and one man are linked to travel to Iran.

She says one of the women is in her 30s and was infected in a household linked to the eighth case in BC, which involved travel to Iran.

Henry says the most important advice she can offer is for people to wash their hands to prevent infection as COVID-19 spreads around the world.

Health Minister Adrian Dix says the first five cases in BC were linked to China, where COVID-19 originated, but the last seven are related to travel from Iran.

Canada now has 33 cases of the new coronavirus, most of them in Ontario.
