A snapshot of the overdose crisis since COVID-19 via BCCDC.

“The overdose crisis in BC has been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite BC reporting over 1300 overdose deaths since the onset of the pandemic, progress in managing the overdose crisis has been ineffectual. To save the lives of people who use drugs affected by these dual public health emergencies, policy makers must work toward developing pandemic guidelines that are both conducive to the needs of people who use drugs, and reflective of COVID-19 control strategies in BC.”
