As BC ramps up its vaccination drive, COVID-19 cases in North Shore continues to decline.
The latest data released on Wednesday from April 25 to May by the British Columbia Centre for Disease Control shows 160 cases of COVID-19 in North Shore, 24 in West Vancouver and 136 in North Vancouver.
The numbers from past weeks indicate a declining trend.
The week before, from April 18 to 24, there were 261 people who had tested positive. The week before that, from April 11 to 17, as many as 327 people had tested positive for COVID-19.
From April 4 to 11, there were 339 cases of COVID-19 on the North Shore.
There are a total of 132,925 cases in British Columbia, and 124,252 people have recovered from the disease.
“We have three highly effective and safe vaccines available in our province, and the more people who receive their vaccine, the faster we will get to the point where COVID-19 is no longer disrupting our daily lives,” said Dr. Bonnie Henry.
“With additional supply now available, we’re accelerating our delivery and we also need you to do your part. We all need to register to reserve our spot and book our vaccine as soon as we are eligible,” she said
She urged people to spread the word and share their vaccine-day photos with friends and family.
“Getting vaccinated when it is our turn, using our layers of protection, staying small and local, and following all of the public health measures is what will see us through this storm.”
