As of May 10 there are 116 COVID related fatalities in Alberta.  The chart below shows the number of people hospitalized, the number of people who’ve been in intensive care, and the fatal cases.  It also notes the general age categories of those affected.  Just five people younger than 60 have passed away during this pandemic, including one person in their 50’s who died this week.

The next table shows how healthcare workers have been affected in Alberta.  As in the general cases, Central Zone has been the most fortunate so far with 13 health care workers catching COVID-19.  This week another health care worker in Central Alberta tested positive.

The best news comes from this “day and case status” graph below.  Early this week the gold line for active cases dipped below the green line indicating recovered cases.  Since then the lines are heading decisively in good directions.  As of May 10 we now have more than twice as many recovered cases as active cases in the province.  Alberta has gone from a high of over 3,000 active cases to well below 2,000 this week.

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

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.

Judy’s story: I’m on the healthy road!

Published on

On the Healthy Road!

My journey to better health starting when my doctor told me my blood sugar was at pre-diabetes levels, my blood pressure continued to require medication and I had weight to lose.  He sent me to see the RDPCN nurse. After some appointments there, the nurse referred me to the Health Basics program.

Exercise was my downfall. Working from home, I always found something else to do rather than exercise.  Health Basics increased my awareness. I tracked what I was eating and became more aware of what I ate, when I ate and why I ate. I also realized things that would make me healthier that I wasn’t doing.  I realized being healthy is a process and I took one healthy step at a time. I also became aware of the wider variety of options for healthy lifestyle.

My husband and I visited friends over the summer and noted they had lost weight.  This stimulated us to pay even more attention to our food intake. As a result of our overall efforts, I have lost about 32 pounds and my husband has lost 37. My blood sugar is now in the normal range. I have had significant decrease in my blood pressure medication. I have more energy. I enjoy exercising more as it is easier to move around and I have less arthritis pain. Health Basics is an excellent class- it started me on the healthy road. I also have much more confidence in my future health.
