Another 66 people in British Columbia have been diagnosed with COVID-19 for a total of 725 cases in the province.

Provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry says there are no new deaths.

Fourteen people have died from COVID-19 in the province.

Henry says there are also new guidelines that will allow doctors to prescribe drugs to illicit drug users, giving them a safe supply to ensure they're able to comply with self-isolation requirements.

Health Minister Adrian Dix says staff at the government's 811 health helpline managed to answer 5,070 calls on Wednesday, dealing with the anxiety and the realities of being sick with COVID-19.
