British Columbia has recorded another 456 cases of COVID-19 and two related deaths, health officials said Wednesday.

The two new cases come the day after New Brunswick reported no new cases on Tuesday, the first day with no new cases reported in the province since December 20, 2020.

Across the province, the seven-day average for new cases is 85/day.

The province has now seen a total of 78,278 confirmed infections and 1,338 fatalities since the start of the pandemic.

There are now 276 active cases of COVID-19 in the island region.

The province has received a total of 35,015 doses of COVID-19 vaccine, and are holding 8,698 in reserve for second doses and planned clinics. The state has reported daily additional deaths below 100 for a week. Hospitalizations have been trending downward since peaking in December and the current level is the lowest since November 10.

Public Health says 13 people have recovered from the virus since Tuesday which has lowered the number of active cases to 64.

There are 6,070 ventilators in the state and 1,493 are in use for all patients.

New Brunswick's COVID-19 online dashboard now provides an update on the amount of vaccines that have been administered to date.
