Just 8 active cases of COVID-19 in all of Central Alberta – Update May 19

Published on

Information from covid19stats.alberta.ca

Now that the province is beginning to open up the economy again it’s expected we’ll soon see a growth in COVID-19 cases throughout the province.  At this point though the numbers are certainly at a low point.  It’s been a full week since any new cases have been identified in the City of Red Deer.   There has yet to be a single case of COVID-19 in Flagstaff and Starland Counties, as well as the Counties of Wetaskiwin and Paintearth.  The Rural Municipality of Provost is also yet to see it’s first case.

Here’s the Central Alberta breakdown.  Locations are listed by the number of ‘active’ cases in each region.

  • Red Deer City – 37 cases – 2 active
  • Red Deer County – 16 cases – 2 active
  • Mountain View County – 9 cases – 2 active
  • Kneehill County – 4 cases – 1 active
  • Ponoka County – 3 cases – 1 active
  • Wetaskiwin City – 8 cases – 0 active
  • Vermilion River County – 6 cases – 0 active
  • Stettler County – 3 cases – 0 active
  • Lacombe County – 3 cases – 0 active
  • Camrose City – 2 cases – 1 death – 0 active
  • Lacombe City – 2 cases – 0 active
  • Beaver County – 2 cases – 0 active
  • Clearwater County – 2 cases – 0 active
  • City of Lloydminster – 1 case – 0 active
  • Camrose County – 1 case – 0 active
  • Minburn County – 1 case – 0 active
  • MD of Wainwright – 1 case – 0 active

The “day and case status” graph below shows just how quickly the situation is changing in Alberta.  Back on May 3 there was an equal number of active and recovered cases.  Just over 2 weeks later there are 5,584 recovered cases and 1,004 active cases.  That’s the least number of active cases since April 16.

Central Alberta continues to be the least affected region in the province.  Here are the numbers from each zone.
