British Columbia is offering a ray of hope for the country in the COVID-19 crisis.
B.C. continues to flatten the curve and health officials say the province may begin to lift restrictions in a “best case scenario”, including the gradual re-opening of business on the Canadian west coast.
British Columbia has a total of 1,647 confirmed cases as of Saturday, with 81 deaths and 987 recovered cases.
B.C.’s provincial health officer says the province will have to find a ‘sweet spot’ in regards to social interactions this summer.
As per reports, Dr. Bonnie Henry advises residents in B.C. may have more opportunities for additional interactions in months ahead, but there will still be no major events through the summer.
If the downward trend continues, restrictions could be loosened as quickly as a month from now.
