BC sees 14 new COVID-19 deaths, including one person in their 40’s

Till Thursday, India's total of COVID-19 cases climbed to 2,57,72,440 after reporting 2,76,110 new cases in the last 24 hours while the daily deaths were recorded below 4,000 after four days, taking the toll to 2,87,122, according to the Union Health Ministry data update.

The new cases bring the total number of cases in New Mexico to 201,186, the New Mexico Department of Health reported Monday. That's about a third of the daily cases B.C. was experiencing at the height of this third wave.

The U.N. agency officially estimates that around 3.4 million people have died directly as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic by May 2021.

On Monday, 127 people were hospitalized in New Mexico for COVID-19.

The number of people battling COVID-19 in hospital decreased to 319 on Friday, including 107 patients in intensive care.

In most countries, the estimated number of excess deaths exceeded the number of reported deaths from covid-19. Vaccinations are critical to stopping this pandemic, and the more people who are vaccinated the better they will work. "Now is not the time to let up as we're doing so well and getting so far ahead".

First doses are well underway and second doses will be coming soon. With a large, steady vaccine supply and an assurance that most people have their first dose, we will be able to look at how we may be able to accelerate delivery of second doses. We're monitoring this closely and will have more to share in early June.

"There are provincial health orders in place, there are travel restrictions in place - not to the beginning of the long weekend but to the end of the long weekend", Horgan said.

As bleak as the findings are, the researchers say this kind of assessment helps us to understand the overall impact of the pandemic on human life - although it's worth remembering, we're halfway into 2021, and the event isn't over yet.

For argument's sake, if fate had taken a different course - and we were spared the deadly consequences of COVID-19 - what would 2020 have looked like?
