20 new COVID-19 cases in B.C., no new deaths

British Columbia has recorded 20 new COVID-19 cases in a day for the first time since June 3.

However, there were no new deaths associated with the coronavirus on Thursday, said provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry.

The province’s case total now stands at 3,028, nine of which are epi-linked.

More than 88 per cent of those patients have fully recovered, while 175 cases remain active.

Seventeen of those cases are in hospital, four of them in critical care.

There were no new health-care outbreaks or community outbreaks.

However, the province continues to monitor several potential exposures in Vancouver, including the No5 Orange strip club and Belmont Hotel.
