It has been 100 days since B.C. health officials first sounded the alarm over COVID-19.

Provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry called Thursday “one of those landmark days,” as it marked more than three months since B.C. health officials first warned of what was then known as the novel coronavirus and the potential of the virus to upend life in western Canada.

“In the last 100 days, we have all watched as the pandemic spread first in China, and then around the world, and affected us here in British Columbia and across Canada,” said Henry.

“Our lives, our businesses, our communities have dramatically changed in this last 100 days – and yet one thing really has stayed the same and that is the unwavering commitment of everybody here in British Columbia to work together and to keep our firewall strong, to do everything we can to protect our communities, our seniors and elders in particular, and our families across British Columbia.”
