Provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry looks on while releasing the latest COVID-19 statistics in British Columbia on Saturday, May 2, 2020.
Provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry and Health Minister are set to unveil British Columbia’s latest modelling numbers on the coronavirus pandemic on Monday
The information will be presented as part of the health officials’ daily COVID-19 update at 1:30 p.m. PT, and will be broadcast live on BC1, the Global BC Facebook page, CKNW and here on the Global BC website.
The government has used modelling data to inform their decisions and plan-making in response to the pandemic, such as the need to cancel non-urgent surgeries to free up enough hospital beds should there be a sudden surge in COVID-19 cases.
The numbers expected on Monday are being used to determine next steps for easing restrictions on the economy, schools and other areas.
