Global News published this video item, entitled “BC could hit 3,000 new COVID-19 cases a day if contact trends don’t go down: health officials | FULL” – below is their description.

British Columbia reported more than 1,200 new COVID-19 cases for the fourth time in eight days, along with three additional deaths on Thursday.

Provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry announced the 1,205 new cases at a live briefing where she delivered sobering new modelling showing the virus on track to hit 3,000 cases per day, if trends do not change.

“Right now, the rate of infectious contacts we’re having, so the contacts where the virus can be transmitted to others, on average in the province is somewhere around 55-60 per cent. That is too high,” Henry said.

“We need to get down to 40 per cent or less, and we have done that consistently — we were able to do that last March, we did that in November when we put in restrictions again.”
