This article reports that BC CDC says they are going to work on giving data on reinfections. (Yay, about damn time.) It also mentions that the “currently-in-hospital” number does capture reinfections. (Whew!)
Reminder that these statistics are wildly inaccurate. First, the province case counts do not include reinfections for some bizarre reason. Second, the case counts are wildly undercounted: two different studies estimated the undercount as being ~90x. Third, hospitalizations are only counted if the person tested positive on a PCR test; rapid tests don’t count. Fourth, hospitalizations don’t count if they were discharged on the same day.
As of today, the BC CDC weekly report said that in the week ending on 5 Nov there were: +407 confirmed cases, +124 hospital admissions, +24 ICU admissions, +20 all-cause deaths.
