Another 500 COVID-19 cases were discovered in Alberta on Boxing Day, Chief Medical Officer Dr. Deena Hinshaw reported on Sunday.
In what she called a “modified” update, Hinshaw tweeted that on December 26, there were an estimated 500 new cases, although she did not specify the regions or how many new deaths there were.
She did say, however, that the province’s test-positivity rate is currently at 7%.
She noted that because fewer people were tested December 25, fewer tests had been processed and reported by yesterday.
Here is today’s #COVID19AB modified update:
On Dec. 26, there was an estimated:
– 500 cases
– 6,900 laboratory tests
– 7% positivity
– hospitalizations – stable
– ICU – stable
Please note: fewer people were tested Dec. 25 so fewer tests were processed and reported on Dec. 26
