Alberta health officials provide update on COVID-19 in the province | FULL

Alberta’s chief medical officer of health Dr. Deena Hinshaw and Health Minister Tyler Shandro will provide an update on the COVID-19 situation in the province on Monday.

Due to system upgrades, Alberta did not release official COVID-19 numbers on Sunday, but Hinshaw estimated there were 300 new cases, including a record high 54 variant cases.

As of Saturday, 1,914 people in the province had died from the disease, and there were 247 people in hospital, with 42 of them in intensive care.

Hinshaw said the estimated 300 cases Sunday came from about 8,100 tests, equaling a positivity rate of approximately four per cent.

Hinshaw said there have now been 290,391 vaccine doses administered, and 90,937 Albertans have received both doses.
