COVID-19: B.C. reports another 13 deaths on Thursday

It brings the total death toll in the province to 2,896 since the start of the pandemic

Another 391 confirmed cases of the novel coronavirus were also reported, though that number reflects selective PCR testing that prioritizes those who are vulnerable or experiencing severe symptoms.More than 90 per cent of the eligible population has received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, and more than 86 per cent have had two doses.

Those numbers have seen only marginal gains in recent weeks as the vaccination campaign focuses on booster doses. Third shots have now been administered to 55.9 per cent of those who are eligible (age 12 and over).One new outbreak in care has been declared, at Parkwood Court in Island Health, while another at Rest Haven Lodge, also in Island Health, is over. That leaves 21 health-care facilities still managing an outbreak across the province.

The 'grey zone' hindering efforts to count Canada's COVID-19 deathsBeing able to tell the difference between whether a person has died from COVID-19 or a separate cause while infected with the virus is important in understanding the overall trajectory of the pandemic, but is easier said than done, experts say.
