Jun 15, 2022

Alberta reported another 24 deaths related to COVID-19 on Wednesday as the province released its updated data from the previous week.

With 24 more deaths, the pandemic total has reached 4,591.

As of end-of-day Monday, there were 719 people in hospital with COVID — 97 fewer than the week before. The number of COVID-19-positive ICU patients also declined; there are 19 in hospital, compared to 24 last week.

COVID ICU patients have reached the lowest level since July 31 of last year.

The province reported another 1,442 new cases of COVID-19 through PCR testing. The true number of new cases is believed to be much higher since the province doesn’t track the number of positive test results from rapid tests and most Albertans can’t access a PCR test.
