Alberta identifies first case of B.1.617 COVID-19 variant first identified in Denmark | FULL

Alberta’s chief medical officer of health Dr. Deena Hinshaw announced Thursday that the first case of the B.1.617 COVID-19 variant had been identified in the province. Hinshaw said the variant was first identified in Denmark and is behind the rapid rise of cases in India.

It comes as overall cases continue to surge in the province.

Hinshaw said the province is treating this as a “variant of interest” at this time. The province’s chief medical officer of health said it was confirmed after an Albertan returned from interprovincial travel. No additional cases of this variant have been detected to date in Alberta.

As of Thursday, variants made up 60 per cent of active COVID-19 cases in Alberta.

Hinshaw also announced Thursday the province is changing the timeline for some Albertans to receive their second dose of COVID-19 vaccine.

Effective Friday, anyone receiving cancer treatments or who is on other kinds of medication that results in a “profound level of immune compromise” will be eligible to book their second dose 21 to 28 days after the first.

The province confirmed an additional 1,857 new cases of COVID-19 had been reported over the past 24 hours.
