BC's health minister and the provincial health officer have issued a joint statement over the coronavirus calling for tolerance and saying British Columbians need to come together in this time of uncertainty.

The virus has killed or sickened thousands in China and Adrian Dix and Doctor Bonnie Henry ask that anyone who is concerned they may have been exposed to the virus to isolate themselves for 14 days.

Two planes loaded with passengers from Wuhan, China, stopped at Vancouver's airport overnight, but Henry and Dix say no passengers or crew remained in BC and they're now in quarantine at Canadian Forces Base Trenton in Ontario.

BC has four cases of the novel coronavirus, including three people who are connected to each other through travel from Wuhan.
