Alberta recorded its largest one-day jump of COVID-19 cases on Wednesday ...

Dr. Deena Hinshaw, Alberta’s Chief Medical Officer of Health, reported that 61 new cases had been confirmed bringing Alberta’s total to 419.

Alberta’s number of recovered cases remains at three, a number that hasn’t changed since Friday, March 20th.

Hinshaw says the province is working on a better way to gather ‘recovered’ cases data, noting that using their limited lab tests to determine if someone has recovered from the virus is not a good use of resources.

So far, there have been 24 hospitalization due to COVID-19 with eight patients presently in the I.C.U. and two deaths.

Here in the ‘Central Zone’, the number of confirmed cases grew from 28 to 35.

Vegreville is still reporting as one confirmed case, while there have been no confirmed cases in Lamont County, Two Hills County, Tofield or Viking.

Strathcona County, excluding Sherwood Park, is reporting 3 cases while Sherwood Park is reporting 4 cases.
