  • Housing Minister Selina Robinson is expcted to release details on a financial relief plan for renters impacted by the coronavirus crisis

No new deaths (beyond the 14) have been reported today, and a total of 186 people have fully recovered from the virus.

There are now 52 cases on Vancouver Island, 359 in the Vancouver Coast Health Authority, 241 in Fraser Health, 62 in Interior Health and 11 in Northern Health.

"I feel a little bit more secure with a provincewide rental freeze", she said, since City of Vancouver rules don't apply to where she and her family live at UBC.

According to Dix, the province now has over 3,000 intensive care unit beds available for more cases that might require hospitalization.

People who qualify for help through the federal Employment Insurance program by showing they've been financially affected by COVID-19 will be eligible for the temporary rent supplement, which will be paid directly to their landlords.

"We must make the efforts now".

Henry said Wednesday that all of the deaths from coronavirus so far in B.C. have been among people older than 70.

"We can all make a difference but we need everyone to be 100-per-cent committed to doing this", she said.

"People are feeling a lot of fear and anxiety and they need to be able to depend on the comfort and stability of home right now", Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing Selina Robinson said.

There will be hard times ahead for British Columbians, said Dix, and people need to follow the health guidelines put in place to help flatten the curve of coronavirus cases. "It's a challenging time for landlords too", Horgan said.

Dix said there is now a huge worldwide demand for personal protective equipement (PPE), some of which is due to supply chain disruptions from the coronavirus.

Mackenzie said the province is also boosting funding to the Better at Home program, which supports seniors with their non-medical needs.

There are now nine care homes in the province where the virus has been detected, including one in Vancouver - Haro Park - where 28 residents and 27 staff members have tested positive for COVID-19.

He described the decision to cancel non-urgent elective surgeries as one of the most hard choices B.C. has had to make.

Henry says many residents in the impoverished community have underlying health conditions and may be more vulnerable to having severe illness from the virus.

"We don't want people to think they might lose that home as a result of this pandemic", he said today.

On Friday, health officials will be presenting modelled scenarios, or projections, of the progression of COVID-19 in B.C., said Dix.
