The County of San Diego releases the latest COVID-19 statistics, including number of fatalities and confirmed cases, each evening.

There are now 4,426 active cases of coronavirus in the province, with public health monitoring 7,049 people across B.C. who are in self-isolation because of COVID-19 exposure.

Active cases went up two and now stand at 128. Meanwhile, there are 54 active cases in the South Island and 7 active cases in the North Island. There are 93 people who have died.

There are 294 individuals now hospitalized with COVID-19, 82 of whom are in intensive care.

Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonie Henry also addressed the "encouraging trend in our COVID-19 curve".

"We know the COVID-19 variants make things more challenging as the virus is more likely to spread quickly, which is why we all need to continue to make safe choices", said the pair. About 90 students and staff were tested, and health officials said there was only one positive result, which came from a rapid test and was later proven to be false by a follow-up polymerase chain reaction test.

On Monday, the COVID-19 vaccine became available to residents 70 years of age and over, as well as anyone with severe congenital, development or early-onset medical disorder. Assuming the case rate stays at a similar pace, taking 18 days to amass another 100,000 cases will be the slowest pace Pennsylvania has seen since the 24 days it took to get from 200,000 cases to 300,000 last fall.

Henry is expected to provide an update on current health orders, which place restrictions on social interactions, on Friday.

To date, 140,452 doses of COVID-19 vaccine have been administered in B.C., 5,097 of which are second doses.
