BC health officials to share updated COVID-19 epidemiological modelling today

Nov 4 2021, 3:41 pm

Health officials will share the latest epidemiological modelling in British Columbia’s COVID-19 pandemic on Thursday afternoon.

The announcement will take place at 1:30 pm with Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry and Health Minister Adrian Dix.

This will be the first time that health officials share updated modelling in several months. The last time that data was shared by Henry and Dix was in August, during which they predicted a gradual increase in cases and hospitalizations over the month of September.

At the time, the province had seen a rapid increase in COVID-19 cases between the middle and end of July, particularly in Interior Health. Henry described it as a pandemic of the unvaccinated.

On Wednesday, BC announced 430 new COVID-19 cases, bringing the total recorded number of cases in the province to 207,120.

There are 4,373 active cases of COVID-19 in the province. Of the active cases, 137 individuals are currently in intensive care. Due to a data error, however, the total number of people in the hospital was not made available.

Today’s announcement can be streamed live on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.
