The number of people with COVID-19 in British Columbia hospitals has fallen to its lowest point since mid-April, according to the province’s latest weekly update.
As of Thursday there were 473 cases in hospital, a one-week decline of 67, and 42 cases in intensive care, a one-week drop of seven, according to the B.C. Centre for Disease Control.
British Columbia’s weekly data reporting regime also provides information on hospital admissions and deaths, though both metrics are only current as of May 21, and are typically revised upward significantly in following weeks.
For the week ending May 21, the BCCDC reported 282 hospital admissions. The figure reported last week of 334 admission between May 8 and May 14 has now been revised up by 16 per cent to 388.
