Jul 29 2020, 3:48 pm

After Alberta saw its first dip in active coronavirus cases in weeks, new numbers from the province are showing that we’ve rebounded right back to where we were two days ago.

As of July 29, Alberta currently has 1,430 active coronavirus cases — 33 more than we had yesterday, and the exact same number that we’d had on Monday before seeing Tuesday’s brief dip.

Another three people died with coronavirus over the past 24 hours, bringing the province’s total to 190 fatalities over the span of the pandemic.

87 people remain in hospital with the virus, 17 of which are in intensive care.

Mandatory mask bylaws come into effect for Calgary, Edmonton, and the town of Banff as of this August long weekend, with city councils hoping that the decision will stem the spread of the virus, which has seen an significant increase in infection rates for those aged 20 to 39 over the past month.

559,932 coronavirus tests have been conducted over the past four months, and 8,983 individuals have so far recovered.
