On June 3, the Geographic Distribution by Local Health Area of Case Residence shows 101 lab-confirmed infections for the virus were found in the Tri-Cities’ vicinity between May 23 and 29, which was the fourth highest in Fraser Health behind Surrey, Abbotsford and Burnaby.
This represents a 64% decrease in cases compared to about a month ago when 277 were detected between April 25 and May 1.
A week after that data was released, Tri-City positive tests were cut by 110 to 167, which was the largest decrease in weekly cases from last month and has steadily declined since.
- 101 = May 23 to 29
- 144 = May 16 to 22
- 153 = May 9 to 15
- 167 = May 2 to 8
- 277 = April 25 to May 1
The biggest factor in the COVID-19 curve bending downward in the region is the vaccination ramp-up that’s taken place across Fraser Health.
As of yesterday (June 2), Tri-City sub-regions broken down by the BCCDC’s surveillance data have reached at least a 70% immunization rate, including Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, Port Moody, Anmore and Belcarra.
Together, they averaged a 71.5% vaccination rate among eligible residents aged 12 years and older.
