Dr. Bonnie Henry reported Thursday five recoveries and two new confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the Northern Health region.
The total now sits at 11 throughout the region. Their precise locations are not being reported by the province, but Henry said the virus was contracted through a mix of both travel and a close-contact.
Five people have recovered in the region, Henry said. "That's good news," she said.
There are now 725 cases and 14 deaths in B.C. Sixty-six of those infected are in hospital, 26 of them in intensive care; another 186 people have recovered. It's not known how many are in hospital in the northern region.
