VICTORIA — British Columbia has recorded 32 deaths related to COVID-19 over the last three days.

The Health Ministry says 14 of the fatalities were in the Vancouver Coastal Health region alone, with the total death toll in the province now reaching 2,707.

It says 3,287 more cases of the virus have been diagnosed since Friday, though officials have said limitations on testing capacity mean daily counts are expected to be higher.

Nearly 91 per cent of adults have received their second dose of a vaccine, and the ministry says almost 53 per cent of residents have had a third shot.

It says that in the past two weeks, over 68 per cent of hospitalized patients who tested positive for COVID-19 had been fully vaccinated.

A total of 57 long-term care, assisted living and acute-care facilities have outbreaks across all five health authorities in the province.
