VICTORIA - The B.C. government reported an additional 13 cases of COVID-19 on Friday.

The additions bring the total number of cases in the province to 2,947, with 162 listed as active.

The province did not report any additional deaths.

There have been a total of 177 deaths in British Columbia related to the novel coronavirus.

The government says six cases that were previously reported in the overall total have been removed from B.C.'s statistics because they were identified as residents of another province.

It says those cases will be reported in their home province, which is consistent with regular protocol.

This report by The Canadian Press was first published July 3, 2020.
