"Like all US states and other provinces in Canada, BC is experiencing rapid growth due to the Delta variant in an environment with significant community transmission," said the report.

According to their data, if the province doesn't roll out more COVID-19 vaccination coverage and safety measures, the daily caseloads could significantly surpass the record number of cases recorded in April of 2021.

In order to prevent a crisis, the report said that vaccinations need to be expanded to 90% of the province and that reducing transmission is key.
