A dentist who attended a large industry conference in Vancouver this month is suspected of dying from COVID-19, while several doctors who attended a curling bonspiel in Edmonton have fallen ill.

Chief medical officers from both provinces have now linked 44 novel coronavirus patients to these two events, gatherings that today would be viewed as reckless and even illegal given what the world knows about the highly infectious virus that causes COVID-19.

British Columbia’s officials say they have tracked down and notified all those put at risk. Meanwhile, Alberta’s medical authorities are scrambling to notify more than 100 people who might have been exposed to the virus by attendees of a curling event.

B.C. dentist who attended Vancouver conference dies of suspected COVID-19 complications

A B.C. dentist who attended a Vancouver conference at the centre of a coronavirus outbreak has died of suspected COVID-19 complications, according to friends and family.

Dr. Denis Vincent, who was in his 60s, died this past weekend at his Vancouver home, according to a longtime friend, who said he had been in his dentist’s chair for an appointment little more than a week previously.

Vincent’s death is raising questions over why all patients at his practice were not alerted about his illness.

He had attended the Pacific Dental Conference at the Vancouver Convention Centre March 5-7.

The nearly 15,000 people at that conference were told on March 16 to self-isolate by the provincial health officer, who confirmed that several cases of COVID-19 had been traced to the event, one of the largest of its kind in North America.

Vincent’s friend Fardad Moayeri said Vincent had not gone to hospital
