Active cases lowest since November in Red Deer but ICU is stressed – COVID19 update from Mike York


2 minute read

The AHS Covid-19 report for Thursday January 07, 2021.
Our Premier Jason Kenney took to the podium today in a short address to the public.
He has announced today that “In school” learning will commence again on Monday January 11th as planned.
He also stated that our current health measures would remain intact for (at least) 2 more weeks, and may be revised prior to or on January 21st. This is pending, based on the results of the holiday season backlash, and expected elevations in our numbers.
In the Central Zone, 98 new cases and 134 recoveries were announced today. Unfortunately, 1 more death was also announced, a man in his 50’s from the Wainwright area has passed. This is the Central Zone’s 50th fatality.
The region now has 1381 active cases, the lowest number since December 5th when we had 1340 cases.
There are currently 92 people in hospitals in our zone, this is down 7 from yesterday.
17 of these people are in intensive care which is the same number as 24 hours ago.
In the city of Red Deer, first the good news. We had just 11 new cases reported today and had 16 people recover. Our current number of active cases is now down to 252 which is the lowest it has been since November 30th when we had 236 active cases.
The unsettling news is that the RDRH currently has 47 individuals suffering from the virus.
Also, all 17 of the cases in our Central Zone requiring intensive care are currently in our hospital. This number along with an additional 5 individuals with non-covid health issues requiring intensive care, has warranted an overflow unit to help facilitate the total number of people requiring special care.
18 of the 22 total patients in intensive care have required the use of ventilators. Our positive thoughts, and wishes of speedy recoveries are needed for these unfortunate individuals.
Be safe, keep up the good work everybody.
