Two millionth dose

Two millionth Dose: Greater Campbell River statistics

“We have been reaching another exciting milestone, in our immunization here in BC. At some time today, the two millionth dose will have been given to people in British Columbia,” said provincial health officer Bonnie Henry, yesterday afternoon.  

That’s nearly half of the provinces 4.3 million eligible residents.

Greater Campbell River statistics

While numbers are falling across British Columbia and Vancouver Island, they may temporarily be higher in Greater Campbell River

The difficulty in making that assessment, is that the data released last Wednesday evening was already a week old. 

There were 11 cases in Greater Campbell River Local Health Area during the epi-week ending on May 1st. That is almost a three fold increase over the previous epi-week, but not really a concern. This number was fluctuating throughout April.

The Vancouver Island wide statistics have been falling for an even longer time. There were 508 active cases on Thursday, April 9th, and 187 yesterday.

The two millionth dose

In yesterday’s update, Bonnie Henry said, “It is incredibly encouraging to see our immunizations going up and our rates of transmission ever so slowly bending down. It’s also so important that we started to see the impact of the measures we have been taking together in BC, meaning that hospitalizations and ICU admissions are also decreasing. This is a huge relief to many of us, to those of our colleagues who are working so diligently every day.”
