MAP: Surrey’s home to more than 27% of B.C.’s COVID-19 cases

BCCDC data shows Surrey has at least 3,993 cases of COVID-19, dwarfing surrounding municipalities

According to new region-by-region statistics released by the BC Centre for Disease Control, the Surrey health region can be considered ground zero for COVID-19 cases in the province.

The data shows that the Surrey health region is responsible for at least 27.7 per cent of the province’s total COVID-19 cases while being home to only 11 per cent of the B.C.’s population.

Once a month, the BCCDC publishes a region-by-region map indicating where COVID-19 cases have been confirmed in the province.

The most recent map, created Nov. 10, shows that 3,993 cases of COVID-19 were confirmed in Surrey from January to October.

On Oct. 31, there were a total of 14,381 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the province, and since then that number has ballooned to at least 20,986.

The map does not specifically indicate South Surrey COVID-19 cases, as these are lumped together with White Rock, reporting a total of 298.

Surrey has more than four times the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in Abbotsford (880). Surrey also has more cases than Vancouver (3,444), when all Vancouver health regions are combined.
