Dr. Henry said herd immunity through infection poses a danger to both young people and those who are most at-risk.

“While in recent weeks the number of new cases in B.C. has been low, the COVID-19 pandemic is far from over – in British Columbia and around the world,” said Henry and Minister of Health Adrian Dix in their joint statement.
