COVID-19 is surging in Alberta, but experts say other provinces shouldn’t worry yet – GLOBAL

July 28, 2021

Over the course of the last two weeks, officials reported more than 749 infections. Meanwhile, Alberta health authorities confirmed 71 new cases of the virus linked directly to the Calgary Stampede, although the province’s former top doctor says that may be an underestimate.

For now, experts say the surge is expected and is no cause for alarm.

“I certainly expected to see some uptick in cases when we reopened,” said Dr. Jia Hu, a public health physician advising the Stampede. “I think the question is what the magnitude will be.”

More than 5.2 million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine have been administered in Alberta, according to the most recently available provincial data.

As of Monday, the province confirmed more than 75 per cent of residents aged 12 and older had received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, while just under 64 per cent of eligible Albertans had been fully vaccinated with two doses.
