COVID-19 killed 20% of British Columbians infected in long-term care, new numbers show.

B.C. has seen a surge in new COVID-19 infections over the weekend, and officials are warning that the province is at a tipping point.

Monday’s briefing is the first since Henry called an unplanned news conference Friday to announce 28 new cases of the virus, including a baby in neonatal intensive care at St. Paul’s Hospital.
