Alberta has made major changes to PCR testing criteria in recent weeks, limiting testing access for those living or working in high-risk areas. The average Albertan can not take during a PCR test, which means that the total number of active COVID-19 cases in Alberta is believed to be much higher than the province reports.

Last week, Chief Medical Officer Dr. Deena Hinshaw said a conservative assessment is that the province is catching one in 10 positive cases.

On Friday, the province reported another 6,163 laboratory-confirmed cases of COVID-19, another pandemic record for Alberta. There were a total of 64,129 confirmed confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Alberta on Friday afternoon.

According to Hinshaw’s estimate, this means there are likely to be at least 640,000 active cases of COVID-19 in Alberta.

The province also reported 232 additional cases of COVID-19 involving the Omicron variant had been confirmed in the last 24 hours.

As of Friday, there have been 436,495 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Alberta. So far, 368,986 of those confirmed cases have been cured.

On Friday, the province announced that more than eight million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine had been administered in Alberta.

“I’m proud that (Alberta Health Services) and pharmacies have responded to the growing demand for the vaccine by delivering fast and safe doses to Albertans who need them,” Health Minister Jason Copping said in a press release.

“Vaccines are an important part of our efforts to prevent hospitals and ICUs from being overloaded with new cases of COVID-19, so it is critical that every Albertan continues to take whatever dose he or she qualifies for.”

Those looking to book a COVID-19 vaccine can do so by calling 811 or visiting the provincial website.
