After six COVID-19 deaths were reported in the Interior Health region yesterday, Sept. 2, another three were recorded in the last 24 hours.

There have been no other COVID-19 deaths recorded in the rest of B.C. over that same time period but a total of 1,827 B.C. residents have died of the disease, according to a Ministry of Health media release issued today, Sept. 3.

Another 230 new cases of COVID were reported in the Interior Health region since yesterday. That’s the same number as in the much larger Fraser Health region and the bulk of the 671 new cases in B.C. as a whole.
