Alberta premier Jason Kenney will be joined by health minister Jason Copping, chief medical officer of health Dr. Deena Hinshaw and Alberta Health CEO Dr. Verna Yiu for an update on COVID-19 in the province on Thursday.
The number of Albertans in hospital with COVID-19 continues to climb to near-record numbers at 1101.
As of Wednesday, 108 of those COVID-19 hospital patients were being treated in ICUs. That number also increased from Tuesday, when it was 104.
AHS President and CEO Dr. Verna Yiu penned an op-ed in the Edmonton Journal Tuesday.
“Every single person requiring ICU care during the past two years has received it, despite an unprecedented increase in demand that has pushed our system and our people to the limit,” Yiu wrote.
But she admitted AHS is once again scaling up capacity.
