Alberta health officials provide update on COVID-19 response, vaccine rollout | LIVE

Alberta’s Dr. Deena Hinshaw will provide an update on COVID-19 in the province on Tuesday, as the case numbers in the province continue to remain high.

Intensive care units in the province are 40 per cent above their usual capacity during the third wave, Premier Jason Kenney announced on Monday, with 241 patients currently in ICUs across the province.

The impact on the healthcare system is of foremost concern for the province and Alberta Health Services (AHS).

“Our healthcare system is under significant stress, more than at any point during the pandemic,” AHS president and CEO Dr. Verna Yiu said. “In fact, we’re currently experiencing several record highs across the healthcare system.”

Alberta Health announced 721 new COVID-19 cases, bringing active cases to 21,288 in the province Monday.

Hospitalizations rose to 678, with 181 in intensive care with COVID-19.

With 7,002 tests conducted, the positivity rate remains above 10 per cent.

Five more deaths due to COVID-19 were also announced, bringing the total to 2,148.
