Information from covid19stats.alberta.ca

Central Alberta is now reporting 85 cases of COVID-19.  With new cases in Red Deer and Red Deer County.   Red Deer now has 6 active cases and there are now 2 active cases in Red Deer County.  As Alberta Health Services continues to monitor cases, sometimes case numbers are designated to different counties as more information becomes available.  Often that results in a small discrepancy between the number of total cases reported, and the number of cases that appear on the provincial map.  Currently the province is reporting 85 cases, but the map appears to indicate there are 86 cases.  This will likely work out within a day or two.

Of the 85 cases in Central Alberta, just 12 are active.  The only fatality so far in Central Alberta was a woman in her 80’s from Camrose.

Here’s the Central Alberta breakdown.

  • Red Deer City – 36 cases – 6 active
  • Red Deer County – 13 cases – 2 active
  • Wetaskiwin City – 8 cases – 1 active
  • Mountain View County – 6 cases – 1 active
  • Vermilion River County – 2 cases – 1 active
  • Clearwater County – 2 cases – 1 active
  • Stettler County – 3 cases – 0 active
  • Lacombe County – 3 cases – 0 active
  • Ponoka County – 2 cases – 0 active
  • Kneehill County – 2 cases – 0 active
  • Camrose City – 2 cases – 1 death – 0 active
  • Lacombe City – 2 cases – 0 active
  • Beaver County – 2 cases – 0 active
  • Camrose County – 1 case – 0 active
  • Minburn County – 1 case – 0 active
  • MD of Wainwright – 1 case – 0 active

The following list updates the number of cases in the province by age group.

 

The next graph shows some good news, at least in the short term.  The gold line representing the number of active cases shows a dip in the number of active cases and a nice increase in recovered cases.

The next graph shows us the rate of people in hospital around Alberta is decreasing in all regions.  A nice trend!

The province only started releasing this information in the last few days.  This is really interesting.  Here are the number of healthcare workers who have become infected with the COVID-19 virus.  Fortunately there are no deaths in this group to this point.

Here are the total numbers for everyone in the province.

After 15 years as a TV reporter with Global and CBC and as news director of RDTV in Red Deer, Duane set out on his own 2008 as a visual storyteller. During this period, he became fascinated with a burgeoning online world and how it could better serve local communities. This fascination led to Todayville, launched in 2016.

Trevor’s Story: I Have Anxiety and Depression. Where Can I Get Help?

Published on

Trevor has suffered from anxiety and depression for a while. He had no idea where or how to get help with this. In discussing this with his doctor, he was referred to a Mental Health Counselor at Red Deer Primary Care Network.

Trevor says, “I, the skeptic, didn’t expect that I would get much help but did decide to work with the counselor. I needed to do something. We had 6 sessions together. The counselor provided me with insight on things that should have been so obvious to me but they weren’t. You don’t know what you don’t know. The counselor provided me with very practical and valuable tools. I came away with a different, more positive way to think about things. And it was just great to have a non-judgmental person to listen to me. It is a relief to just be able to tell someone who was really listening about my struggles.

These sessions were so valuable. I am in a much better state than I was. My struggles are not over but I manage to get through each day using the tools and improved mindset that I learned.

If anyone else is struggling like me I recommend no matter if they think it won’t help  just go, go in with an open mind. Even if you just feel you need someone to talk to you will get valuable tools to help manage your situation.”
