Three more coronavirus deaths in B.C., officials say

17 Mars, 2020, 00:59 | Auteur: Anatole Charbonneau

There has been a cluster of cases at the Lynn Valley Care Centre, where a man in his 80s with pre-existing health conditions died on March 8.

Lions Gate Hospital, which has had a COVID-19 outbreak, is only accepting emergency cases, he said.

The duo also explained that elective surgeries have been cancelled to help free up space for coronavirus cases.

Access to care homes has also been restricted to staff and essential visitors only.

The province has also told the B.C. College of Pharmacists to allow pharmacists to refill prescriptions without a new note from a doctor.

Henry and Dix said health authorities are still consulting education stakeholders about whether to extend school closures beyond the regular two-week spring break that lasts until the end of March and expect to make an announcement soon.

Meanwhile, five people who tested positive have now recovered.

The city has cancelled or postponed all gatherings of more than 250 people in an effort to reduce the risk of spreading the novel coronavirus, and will provide details Monday of additional cancellations and suspension of services. Now, however, gatherings of over 50 people are being banned.

That move comes after the District of West Vancouver closed down most of its recreation facilities to the public over the weekend and Capilano University announced it is suspending classes. This brings the provincial death toll to four - all related to the care centre in North Vancouver. Airlines have also been directed to not allow anyone who is showing symptoms of COVID-19 to board a plane heading to Canada, including Canadian citizens, said Trudeau.

He urged people from Washington and the rest of the U.S. not to come to BC.

At this time, Trudeau said the measure doesn't apply to U.S. citizens or to flights coming from Mexico and the Caribbean.
