BC is reporting 148 new cases of COVID-19 as well as two more deaths.

Provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry says both deaths were in the Fraser Health region and she also revealed an Indigenous elder died last weekend in the northern region.

Dr. Henry acknowledged it's taken some time to develop a consistent reporting system of all cases in schools and says she has full confidence in reporting by Vancouver Coastal Health.

British Columbia's top doctor is thanking supporters after revealing she has faced abuse and death threats related to her public health orders during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Dr. Bonnie Henry says she appreciates all the notes and positive feedback she has received since saying on Tuesday that she's had security in her home after receiving abusive letters and calls to staff.
