What we know about other populations around the globe? And how does this compare to what is happening in B.C.?
• The BCCDC continues to track and model the global, Canada and B.C. case rates on an ongoing basis.
• B.C.’s rate of growth is being positively impacted by the public health measures adopted over the past few weeks.
There is some and growing evidence that public health measures being taken in B.C. are having the desired impact on transmission rates taking us below expected rates of growth.
• Not withstanding for planning purposes, there is value in planning our response based on higher rates from reference jurisdictions of Hubei and Northern Italy (cases and hospitalization).
