Another case of the new coronavirus, COVID-19, has been identified in British Columbia.

B.C.'s provincial health officer, Dr. Bonnie Henry, says the man, in his 50's, returned from Iran last week and began to feel ill.

He is in isolation at home in the Fraser Health region and Henry says he, his family and close contacts are all being monitored.

Ontario reported two more cases of the virus this morning and those, along with the latest B.C. case, have pushed the total number of COVID-19 illnesses in Canada to 30.
