The Fraser Health Authority have classified a rampant flu outbreak in Metro Vancouver a health hazard.
Chief Medical health officer Doctor Paul Van Buynder says serious steps are being made to take on the outbreak.
Van Buynder says greater attention will be given to vulnerable residents fighting flu outbreaks in long term care facilities.
"So our message to everybody who has a loved one in a long term care facility is that we're going to try and protect them further than we have been able to far."
This number of flu outbreak cases have already doubled this year from years previous.
