According to the Provincial Health Officer, Dr. Bonnie Henry, a female in her 30s, residing in the Fraser Health region had recently returned from Iran and is presumed positive based on signs of having the virus and local testing.
Henry says samples have been sent to the National Microbiology Laboratory in Winnipeg for final confirmation.
