Alberta Surpasses 3K COVID-19 Deaths, Adds 786 New Cases Wednesday – .


Edmonton –

More than 3,000 Albertans have now died from COVID-19 after the province reported 18 new deaths and 786 new cases on Wednesday.

The deaths are spread over several days and vary between 30 and over 80 years. They bring the number of Albertans who have died from COVID-19 to 3,006.

The 3,000th death appears to have occurred on Sunday, but that could change pending future data revisions and typical delays in reporting deaths.

Alberta has averaged about 10 deaths from COVID-19 per day over the past week.

As of Wednesday, 928 people hospitalized with COVID-19, including 203 patients in intensive care units.

The province now has 10,842 active cases and a daily seven-day average of 786 infections, as both numbers continue to decline over the past week.

Of all Albertans, 73.4 percent received one dose of the vaccine and 66.2 percent received two or more injections.

Unvaccinated Albertans remain significantly more likely to have a serious outcome after contracting COVID-19, including hospitalization or death.

The next data update is scheduled for Thursday afternoon.
