COVID-19: Third Case of Thrombosis Recorded in British Columbia

This third case of thrombosis was reported in a 30-year-old Vancouver resident. The latter is currently being treated at the hospital.

The first case was announced on May 6, the second on May 13.

Before disclosing the latest data related to the pandemic, Chief Health Officer Bonnie Henry and Health Minister Adrian Dix noted the discovery of the remains of 215 children found at the site of a former Kamloops indigenous boarding school.

There are no words to correct the deliberate and deliberate system created to assimilate and destroy indigenous communities.said Dr. Henry in a worried voice.

The authorities agree on the need to end racism in the health care system.

British Columbia has 2,953 active COVID-19 cases and 249 hospitalizations, including 78 in intensive care units.

Two new outbreaks have been reported, one at the Richmond Lions Manor-Bridgeport Long Term Care Center and the other at Iqra Islamic School in Surrey.

Among those who have died from this disease since Friday, forty, two are sixty and eight are over 70 years old.

Since the start of the immunization campaign, 3,250,116 doses of the vaccine have been administered and nearly 70% of the adult population is now vaccinated.

However, a dozen teens accidentally received the Moderna vaccine over a weekend before Health Canada adopted it for young people under the age of 18.

We don’t think this is a dangerous mistake.– explains Dr. Henry, adding that clinical trials are being conducted to determine the effectiveness of the vaccine for this age group.

This in no way excuses the mistake. she said, however.

The province expects Health Canada to update its recommendations for vaccinating adolescents with Moderna in the coming weeks.
