Coronavirus Canada updates: Alberta reports smallest case spike in two months

Alberta identified 19 new cases of COVID-19, which marks the smallest increase to its total case count since March 16.

The update also increases its total case count to 6,735. That includes 128 fatalities, after no new deaths were reported for the second straight day.

At least 5,637 people have recovered from COVID-19. That leaves 970 active cases, with the Calgary zone being home to 784 of them. In the entire province, there are 58 people in hospital and seven in intensive care.

Chief medical officer of health Dr. Deena Hinshaw didn’t hold a press conference on Wednesday, after deciding to scale back her public availability now that Alberta has entered Stage 1 of its reopening plan.

As of the province’s last update, health officials have completed 221,571 tests for COVID-19.
