A dentist who attended a Vancouver dental conference at the centre of a novel coronavirus outbreak in the city recently died of suspected COVID-19 complications.
Dr. Denis Vincent of North Vancouver attended the Pacific Dental Conference, which took place at the Vancouver Convention Centre from March 5-7.
Provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry was asked about COVID-19 cases related to the conference.
She confirmed about 20 people who attended the conference from the area have since tested positive for the virus, as well as a dozen others who are from outside the province. All those who attended were asked self isolate.
