  • A note from the community is seen on the front door of Dr. Denis Vincent's dental practice in North Vancouver B.C. Tuesday

Dix added that B.C.is continuing to prepare the healthcare system for COVID-19 worst-case scenarios.

Health Minister Adrian Dix said that the province has acquired 15 new ventilators, and that 15 more had been refurbished.

While other provinces, including Quebec, Ontario, and Alberta, report the cities where cases have been confirmed, B.C. reports the cases by health authority.

Of those 1,013 confirmed cases, 507 have fully recovered, while 128 remain in hospitals across B.C., 61 of whom are in intensive-care units.

"I don't think we need to be this locked down, if you will, for many, many months", she said.

Dix said there are now 4,171 vacant acute-care beds across the province's hospitals due to measures taken to free up beds for COVID-19 patients, those measures including postponing all elective surgeries.

Of the five deaths, four were in the Vancouver Health region, with the fifth in the Fraser Health region.

Meanwhile, Interior Health is investigating the first large community outbreak case, involving workers at Bylands Nurseries Ltd.in West Kelowna.

Dr. Bonnie Henry said Tuesday the search for a vaccine is a top priority because it will stop COVID-19 from spreading.

In in the Interior Region, the 107 confirmed cases rose by 13 from Monday's reporting of 94 and 77 on Saturday. None of the workers interacted with customers and they had minimal contact in the community, said the statement. "We need to hold the course right now", she stressed.

"Nobody has sacrificed more than people who are waiting for surgery", he said.

She said they were tested over the weekend, but hadn't previously been moving around the community as they'd come in from overseas. "The business itself is being quarantined and everybody is able to be isolated effectively in the housing - the very good housing - that is on site there".

Henry did, however, elaborate a bit on what her reasoning might have been, saying that she identifies outbreaks in the community when there are ongoing investigations or fears that the virus is being transmitted in an ongoing way.

The restrictions put in place to limit the spread of the novel coronavirus will last until at least the end of April, B.C. health minister Adrian Dix said Tuesday.

And while there are "many different factors ... part of it is how we respond to them".
