Another two of Tuesday's cases are in the Fraser Health Region. Henry said the dead man was in his eighties and had a number of underlying medical conditions.

Despite the calls for increased social distancing measures, Henry emphasized a worst-case scenario is not inevitable.

Horgan said public health institutions are well placed to cope with the novel coronavirus, having learned lessons from the SARS outbreak in 2003 and the H1N1 pandemic in 2009.

These new developments come on the day the World Health Organization officially declared COVID-19 a pandemic. "It's something that we've been talking about for several weeks".
