B.C.’S COVID-19 CASE NUMBERS As of the latest figures given on Sept. 9 • Total number of confirmed cases: 172,338 (5,594 active cases) • New cases since Sept. 8: 774 • Total deaths: 1,847 (five additional deaths) • Hospitalized cases: 262 • Total vaccinations: 3,955,624 received first dose; 3,608,067 second doses • Recovered from acute infection: 164,470 • Long-term care and assisted-living homes, and acute care facilities currently affected: 22 (one new) Advertisement Article content “With respect to the case and the individual who passed away and her family, I understand their grief. I know that everyone involved feels that and can understand that. What I can say is that there is going to be, as there is in such a case, the issue will be fully reviewed both by Interior Health and, potentially, through the Patient Quality Review Board independently to get a full view of that.” According to a report in Kamloops This Week , Royal Inland Hospital has been the subject of numerous recent incidents regarding staffing shortages and low morale. It has been reported that about two-thirds of the nurses in ER have recently left the job due to burnout, leaving nurses and doctors dealing with far more patients each than they normally would. Advertisement Article content In addition, at least three straight weeks of elective surgeries were cancelled due to staffing shortages and limited time in operating rooms, coupled with a surge in COVID-19 patients and those who were brought to hospital from areas under wildfire-related evacuation orders and alerts. “Because of the circumstances right now, particularly in ICU, we are delaying some surgeries, some non-urgent surgeries, at particular hospitals and so you’ll see that, for the most part, there are a relatively small number of surgeries delayed in the month of August outside of Interior Health,” Dix said. He said there had been “adjustments” made to surgeries at Surrey Memorial Hospital, Vancouver General Hospital, Abbotsford Regional General Hospital and Royal Columbian Hospital in New Westminster. Advertisement Article content “If surgery has been delayed our commitment continues to be the same. We’re going to do everything we can to rebook you as soon as possible and get the surgeries done.” Dix said it was unvaccinated, or partly vaccinated people responsible for most of the COVID-19 cases being treated in hospitals. In the past two weeks, 80.5 per cent of cases admitted to hospital were people who are not vaccinated. According to latest B.C. Centre for Disease Control statistics, Creston and Enderby in the Interior Heath region both have a fully vaccinated rate of 58 per cent, while Hope in Fraser Health is at 64 per cent. Peace River in Northern Health is at 48 per cent. On Vancouver Island, the Cowichan Valley West has the lowest rate at 68 per cent. Advertisement Article content He admonished those who refused to get vaccinated against COVID-19 and had staged protests against the province’s vaccine card — that now has more than 1.1 million registered users — outside hospitals. Dix also said the province was reviewing “all options” when it comes to limiting protests outside health facilities. “Demonstrating in these circumstances and interfering with our hospitals and yelling at our health care workers serves no purpose at all,” he told a news conference. Dix said ignoring scientific facts and refusing the vaccine hurts the wider population. “Going up against this virus by going on with our daily lives unvaccinated when we’re eligible to be vaccinated helps only the virus,” he said. “Going up against the virus by rejecting the facts, the data, the evidence and science and its instructive purpose only hurts us all.” Advertisement After a surge in demand for medical letters for vaccine exemptions, Dr. Shane Barclay has reached his limit. In a letter to patients  this week, Barclay said no exemption letters will be written for patients unless they meet the criteria set out by health authorities. A physician who writes a false medical legal letter is committing fraud: “A doctor can be charged, fined and potentially lose their licence.” “I am not prepared to commit fraud, so someone can avoid a vaccine,” wrote Barclay, who treats patients in the Interior at Sun Peaks Community Health Centre. Almost immediately after the announcement that British Columbians would need proof of vaccination to access some non-essential services, the medical exemption requests started coming in, said Barclay. “About half a dozen in the first week.” Advertisement Article content A clinic colleague, Dr. Ivan Bantock, said patient excuses for an exemption ranged “from soup to nuts.” The allowable medical criteria for vaccine exemption are being aged 11 or younger, having received a vaccination for something else within two weeks (so you’d have to wait two weeks to get the COVID vaccine), or having a documented history of severe allergic reaction to a COVID vaccine or one of its main ingredients. (And the chances of that, Barclay wrote, are lower than being hit by lightning.) — Denise Ryan Five more people in B.C. have died because of COVID-19, provincial health officials reported Thursday. Of the five deaths, three people lived in the Fraser Health region, one person lived in Island Health and one person was from the Northern Health region. This brings the total number of COVID-19 related deaths in the province to 1,847, according to a statement from the ministry of health. Advertisement Article content There were 774 new cases of COVID-19 reported since Wednesday, of which 233 new cases were in Fraser Health, 123 in Vancouver Coastal Health, 253 in Interior Health, 98 in Northern Health and 65. in Island Health There are currently 5,594 active cases of the virus in B.C., including 262 people being treated in hospital, with 130 in intensive care. The majority of active cases are in Interior Health (1,747 active cases) and Fraser Health (1,669 active cases). There were 6,455 first doses of COVID-19 vaccine administered on Wednesday, and 77.8 per cent of British Columbians aged 12 and older now fully vaccinated with two doses. From Sept. 1 to 7, people not fully vaccinated accounted for 78.6 per cent of cases, and from Aug. 25 to Sept. 7, they accounted for 86.3 per cent of hospitalizations. After factoring for age, people not vaccinated are 34 times more likely to be hospitalized than those fully vaccinated, according to provincial health data. Advertisement
