A Closer Look At British Columbia Covid Case Numbers
For comparison at Sept. 9/20 from the start of the covid crisis (5 months) BC did 404,714 tests which produced 6591 cases resulting in 213 deaths, 32 hospitalizations and 12 ICU patients.
Two months later as of Nov. 8 there had been 888,593 tests which produced 17,149 cases resulting in 275 deaths, 104 hospitalizations and 28 ICU patients.
Putting this in perspective for the 5 months ending in Sept. 1.6% of people tested were positive and of those 3.2% proved fatal. The vast majority of these deaths occurred in care facilities among the elderly.
Two months later 1.9% of those tested were positive and of those 1.6% proved fatal.
During the first 5 months the province was testing on average 80,942 people per month, assuming each test was for one person and not multiple tests on the same person. The number of tests per month from Sept. to Nov. was ramped up to 241.939 tests per month.
