On May 21, after Island Health had reported no new confirmed cases of COVID-19 in two full weeks, Henry said that some cases may be occurring without a verified test. “We are not catching everybody that has it, we know it’s in all of our communities,” she said at the time. On Thursday, B.C. health officials announced the latest modelling data of COVID-19 in the province. The data suggested that the majority of cases on Vancouver Island have been found in the northern region. Island Health’s northern region, which includes parts of the mainland’s central coast, has recorded 59 cases of COVID-19 since the pandemic began.
