Alberta health minister, chief medical officer provide COVID-19 update | LIVE

From Global News.

Alberta Health Minister Jason Copping will join Chief Medical Officer Dr. Deena Hinshaw to provide an update on the COVID-19 situation in the province on Tuesday.

Tuesday’s update comes after Alberta reported 41 deaths over three days this past weekend.

The number of people in Alberta hospitals with COVID-19 also reached yet another all-time high, with 1,304 people receiving care. Of those, 108 are in intensive care.

Late last week, Premier Jason Kenney cautiously suggested Alberta had reached the peak of the fifth wave, driven by the Omicron variant of COVID-19.

However, health officials have warned there will still be a large number of cases as we come down the other side of the wave.
