Alberta reports more than 2,000 COVID-19 cases because it brings more restrictions on hotspots

Edmonton – Alberta on Thursday recorded more than 2,000 Govt-19 cases for the first time in epidemics and set a record for active incidence.

The province is introducing target controls in regions with a rate of 350 per 100,000 residents and at least 250 active cases. This includes Edmonton, Calgary, Fort McMurray, Red Man, Grande Prairie, Airtie, Lethbridge and Stratcona County, Prime Minister Jason Kenny said.

In these regions, junior and high school students will switch to online learning from Monday, and indoor fitness and group sports will be suspended, Kenny said.

These restrictions will remain in place for two weeks, even if a city falls below the 350-case rate limit during that period. After two weeks they will return to provincial level controls.

On Thursday, 2,048 cases broke the December 14 record of 1,887 infections, and 21,385 active cases surpassed the 20,976 records set in mid-December.

Alberta also set an ICU record with 151 admissions, with a total of 632 people affected by Govt-19.

Lots to come …
