More than 700 people on North Shore have tested positive for COVID-19, according to the data released by the B.C. Centre for Disease Control.
As many as 206 people in West Vancouver and 554 people have been diagnosed so far. The West Vancouver health region also includes Bowen Island.
In Vancouver, 3,444 people have been diagnosed with the disease so far.
This cumulative data is from January to October 2020, and was released last week by the BCCDC.
The centre says the cases are mapped by location of residence, and cases with unknown residence and those from out of the province are not mapped.
The centre also notes that the number of cases may not represent the location of the exposure. For example, people may have acquired the disease while travelling or working somewhere else.
“Not all COVID-19 affected individuals are tested and reported. The virus may be circulating undetected in the community, including in areas where no cases have been identified by public health,” the centre says.
Meanwhile, Surrey remains the hotspot in Lower Mainland for COVID-19 exposure, with 3993 reported cases so far.
There are 6,929 active cases of COVID-19 in the province. Currently, 217 individuals are in the hospital, and 59 of them are in intensive care.
The remaining people are recovering at home in self-isolation.
