Visits to the region's emergency rooms are down so dramatically that doctors fear people with serious health conditions are afraid to seek help.

Patient volume at St. Paul's Hospital's emergency department is down 40 per cent since provincial stay-at-home orders were issued, while east Vancouver's Mount Saint Joseph's ER is seeing only 50 per cent of its normal number of patients, said Dr. Dan Kalla, head of the ERs at both hospitals.
