The latest wave of COVID-19 cases may have peaked in parts of BC, health officers say.

COVID-19 modeling, published by the Vancouver-British Columbia Government, shows that the latest waves driven by Omicron variants may have already peaked in parts of the state.

State health official Dr. Bonnie Henry says the waves spread faster than before, and health officials believe it is likely to have reached the peak of recent surges last weekend.

Modeling figures show a decrease in infections at two health authorities, Vancouver Coast and Fraser Health, which leveled off on Vancouver Island and rose slightly inside.

The data also show that the actual infection can be three to four times the official daily number due to the limit of testing capacity in the state.

According to the latest information, within 6 weeks, Omicron replaced the delta variant as the leading cause of infection in the community and hospitals. This is consistent with data from around the world.

According to modeling, hospitalization will peak next week, with a lag time of approximately 6-8 days expected after submission from the community.

This report by Canadian Press was first published on January 14, 2022.
