New Cases, No Deaths Tuesday; Case Counts Lowest Since March 2020

Nearly 14 per cent of adults in B.C. are now fully vaccinated (613,453) as second dosing ramps up (with 115,521 second doses administered over the past three days).

There is a sense of déjà vu with the Manitowoc County COVID-19 reports, as for the sixth time this month, only two new cases were added by the Health Department yesterday (June 15).

There are 1,537 active cases of COVID-19 in the province, and 136 individuals are hospitalized with COVID-19, 42 of whom are in intensive care. No new deaths were reported.

Some 43.7% of the USA population has been fully vaccinated - meaning they have received the single-dose Johnson & Johnson Covid-19 shot, or both doses of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine - and 52.5% has received at least one dose, the CDC said.

Health officials noted that restrictions such as physical distancing and staying home if feeling unwell are still in effect.

No new deaths were registered Tuesday, leaving the provincial death toll at 1,734 and the Interior Health death toll at 153.

"As has been the case since the start of the pandemic, our success in this next phase is dependent on all of us doing our part to keep COVID-19 low and slow", said Henry and Dix.
