There are two new cases of COVID-19 in Richmond, bringing the city’s total count to 90.
The cases were reported in the last two weeks, June 8 to June 21, according to new modelling data presented by B.C. health officials Wednesday (June 23).
Richmond continues to have one of the lowest numbers of COVID-19 cases in the Greater Vancouver and Fraser Valley areas, some of which has been credited to actions taken by the Chinese and Iranian communities in the early days of the pandemic in B.C.
Richmond’s total of 90 translates to about 45 cases per 100,000 in Richmond.
Health officials last presented modelling data June 4, when Richmond had reported no new cases for a two week period (May 18 to May 31).
2,835 people have tested positive for COVID-19 in B.C. since late January, when the first case was reported.
