British Columbia health officials reported 564 new cases of COVID-19 on Thursday, along with four additional deaths.

At a live briefing, provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry said it left B.C. with 4,743 active cases. Another 8,659 people were isolating due to potential exposure.

Of the new cases, 168 were in the Vancouver Coastal Health region, 279 were in the Fraser Health region, 35 were in the Island Health region, 36 were in the Interior Health region and 46 were in the Northern Health region.

B.C. reported 46 new cases of the COVID-19 variants of concern, bringing the total so far to 246: 218 of those were the B.1.1.7 variant first identified in the U.K., while 28 were the B.1.351 first identified in South Africa.

The province says it still does not know the origin of about 25 per cent of those cases.

Just 16 of those cases remain active, four of them in hospital. Two people have died from the variants.
