Interior Health

Yesterday, the Interior Health Authority reached a new COVID-19 milestone by reporting its 200th positive case since the pandemic began.

The Interior is the third health authority in BC to hit 200 cases after the Vancouver Coastal and Fraser Health regions hit the total months ago as cases surged in the urban centres.

Of the 200 cases, just two remain active with nobody currently admitted to the hospital. Sadly, two people have passed away from the virus in the Interior.

More men than women have contracted the virus in the region with 107 males, compared to 93 females. The most affected age-range continues to be 30-39 year-olds.

Both of those statistics run counter to provincial averages with more women contracting the virus across BC and the most affected age-range begin 50-59.
