I and a friend have been puzzling together about the drop in VOC cases in BC. One possibility is that COVID Classic is increasing its market share, which seems unlikely. A more likely explanation is that Variants of Interest are circulating but they have not yet been declared Variants of Concern.
An obvious suspect is Lambda, which was first identified in Peru. However, this article says that BC only found one case of Lambda last week.
Today: +41 cases, +0 deaths (for the SIXTH day in a row!), +5,762 first doses, +61,308 second doses (with 257 AZ).
Currently 65 in hospital / 11 in ICU, 639 active cases, 145,817 recovered.

We have 879,439 doses in fridges; we’ll use it up in 13.1 days at last week’s rate. We’ve given more doses than we’d received by 16 days ago.
We have 815,387 mRNA doses in fridges; we’ll use it up in 12.2 days at last week’s rate. We’ve given more mRNA doses than we’d received by 16 days ago.
We have 64,052 AZ doses in fridges; we’ll use it up in 175 days at last week’s rate.
