Newly-confirmed COVID-19 cases were back to double digits in B.C. on Wednesday, as the province reported three new deaths and 21 new cases of the novel coronavirus.

B.C. had been recording smaller numbers of COVID-19, such as just two new cases the day before, which is the lowest single-day total since March 6.

Despite that, health officials said in a joint statement that the province now has 2,467 total cases and that more than 81 per cent of them have recovered.
