Coronavirus: Alberta officials provide update on COVID-19 pandemic amid various controversies | FULL

The controversy surrounding government officials travelling over the holidays took centre stage at Alberta’s first COVID-19 update of 2021.

Alberta’s chief medical officer of health Dr. Deena Hinshaw, Health Minister Tyler Shandro and Ric McIver, the province’s newly appointed municipal affairs minister, all spoke at the news conference.

McIver was appointed to his new post after former minister Tracy Allard resigned from the portfolio following news she had travelled to Hawaii despite the government recommending against non-essential travel.

Hinshaw also spoke to what she called misinformation surrounding COVID-19 vaccine waste.

Shandro and Hinshaw issued a joint statement Tuesday morning to “definitively address this inaccurate information.”

The statement came as 843 new cases of COVID-19 were reported in Alberta on Tuesday afternoon, along with 26 additional deaths from the disease.
