There were eight new COVID-19 cases listed locally in the tri-county area, according to Monday's report from the Indiana Department of Health.

The provincial health officer released figures on Monday showing a jump of nearly 1,000 active cases of the disease each day over the past few days, with 8,490 people now sick. The number of people in intensive care grew by nearly 20 per cent over the same period to 96 as 916 variant cases appeared.

Combined, this results in a four-day case count of 4,040 new cases, for a total of 104,061 cases in British Columbia to date.

The number of active COVID cases in Hancock County went up in the latest data released by Hancock Public Health. The remaining people with COVID-19 are recovering at home in self-isolation.

Sadly, there have been 23 new COVID-19 related deaths since April 1, for a total of 1,486 deaths in British Columbia. This includes 2,771 cases of the B.1.1.7 (UK) variant, 51 cases of the B.1.351 (South Africa) variant, and 737 cases of the P.1 (Brazil) variant.

Henry's position is to get as many people one shot of vaccine as possible and to delay as long as possible giving two shots.

"As of 8 am tomorrow, all people 71 years and older, Indigenous peoples 18 and older, and those who have received their "clinically extremely vulnerable" letter in the mail may book their vaccine appointment online, by telephone through B.C.'s new provincial call-in centre or in-person at a Service BC location", said Dr. Henry in a written statement.
