COVID-19 cases on North Shore continue to fall dramatically.
From May 1 to May 8, the North Shore recorded 98 cases, of which 28 were recorded in West Vancouver and 66 in North Vancouver, according to the latest weekly data released by British Columbia Centre for Disease Control (BCCDC).
From April 25 to May 1, BCCDC recorded 160 cases of COVID-19 on the North Shore.
The week before, as many as 261 people had tested positive, and 327 people in the week prior.
More than 50% of all eligible people in B.C. have received their first dose of COVID-19 vaccine, the province said, and Premier John Horgan is calling for everyone to register for vaccination and help friends, family and neighbours to do the same.
“COVID-19 has turned our lives upside down, but this milestone gives us hope of better days ahead. We have to keep going,” he said.
