B.C.'s provincial health officer says there are no new cases of a new coronavirus in the province since a seventh case was identified over the weekend.

But she says all those who have been diagnosed with the flu-like respiratory illness are doing well and are recovering in isolation at home.

Henry says the World Health Organization has not yet termed the COVID-19 outbreak a pandemic but there is a good possibility that it will continue to spread.

She says officials are ``starting to think more'' about how they would respond should a pandemic be declared.
