2 minute read

Here is the AHS Covid-19 report for Tuesday January 12, 2021.
Our province is showing some current positive numbers of late.
Today Alberta has had more than twice as many recoveries as opposed to new cases. Just 652 new cases of the virus but a remarkable 1311 people recovered.
In the Central Zone, the tragic news first. Unfortunately 6 more casualties to covid were reported since 24 hours ago. Our resort town to the west, Sylvan Lake has had its second fatality, the city of Camrose has had 2 new deaths bringing there total up to 11 now. There was also another life lost in the Vegreville area, there third.
Also, our fair city of Red Deer has suffered 2 more deaths to bring our total now to 12.
The Central zone had just 37 new cases since yestetday, that’s the lowest single day total of new cases in nearly 6 weeks.(22 on Nov. 29th)
The zone had almost 3 times as many recoveries as new cases with 109. The result is a decrease of 78 in active cases, down from 1472 yesterday to 1394 today.
There are 84 people in hospitals in the zone, 16 of which are in the ICU in RDRH.
In the city we love, Red Deer, we had just 5 new cases reported, the lowest single day total since November 21, and only the 4th time since the end of September we have had 5 or less cases reported in a single day. Way to go people!
Along with the 5 new cases comes 18 new recoveries. We therefore now have just 225 active cases.
This is the lowest our active cases has been since November 16th when there were 217.
The total number of people in our hospital with the virus is now 43, 16 of which are in Intensive care.
Again, its nothing other than the people following protocol and guidelines in our city, and in our zone that effects these numbers getting worse or getting better. Whatever we are collectively doing, is starting to show results!
Keep up the good work and be proud of the sacrifices you are making everyone.
Cheers to you all !!

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

Published on

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.
