The province is reporting 12 COVID-19 deaths in the past day and two of them are in the Lakeland.
A man in his 60’s linked to the outbreak at the William J. Cadzow – Lac La Biche Healthcare Centre and a man in his 80’s linked to an outbreak at Bonnyville Extendicare passed away. Both cases were said to have included comorbidities.
On a positive note, there was a significant drop in the COVID-19 provincial positivity rate day-to-day.
Alberta reported 459 new cases out of just over 12,800 tests for a positivity rate of 3.6 percent.
That’s down from 4.4 percent on Tuesday.
While it’s good news, Alberta’s top doctor says there is still a lot of pressure on the health care system with just as many people in hospital today as there were on December 4th.
