Currently, there are 4,189 active cases in the province. 31 of these deaths occurred in February and 2 in January. Just two cases separated the 25-34 and 35-44 age categories, amassing 2,138 and 2,140 cases respectively.

Arizona health officials reported 1,338 new COVID-19 cases on Monday as the state approaches 800,000 cases and 15,000 deaths since the pandemic began.

However, the 75-85 category had both the highest number of hospitalised cases (209) and the highest percentage of cases being treated in ICUs (21 per cent) in the two-week period.

In her first update since Friday, Dr. Bonnie Henry said the latest data brings B.C.'s death toll to 1,314.

The state did not report any new deaths Monday, but the fatality numbers tend to be light on Mondays following a lag in weekend reporting.

There were also 2,326 cases noted as community transmission, while 3,374 cases are still under investigation to determine their most likely transmission source.

Five of these people were under the age of 65, nine were aged between 65-74, and 28 were between 75-84.

And Dr Lorraine Doherty, national clinical director Health Protection HSE - Health Protection Surveillance Centre (HPSC), said: "From today, the over 85 age sub-cohort, which accounts for approximately 72,500 people, will receive their first vaccine over the coming weeks".

As B.C. tries to keep its COVID-19 reproductive rate below one, meaning that people who contract the virus only pass it on to one person or fewer, the reproductive rate has risen above one in several regions, particularly in the Lower Mainland.

There are now 474 people with Covid-19 being treated in hospitals across Northern Ireland - 55 of them in intensive care and 45 on ventilators. The symptom status was unknown for the remaining 22 per cent of cases.
