British Columbia is reporting 53 new COVID-19 cases and three deaths since Saturday.

Provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry says B.C. now has a total of 2,224 positive COVID-19 cases, with 1,417 people having recovered.

She says the provincial death total is now at 117 people.

Henry says the three most recent deaths are people who were residents of long-term care centres.

She says B.C.'s most recent COVID-19 modelling data continues to show dramatic decreases in cases since the province introduced physical distancing and other measures in March to slow the spread of the virus, but it continues to primarily impact people 60 years of age and older, especially males in their 90s.
