Figure 4: COVID-19 cases in Alberta by day and case status. Recovered is based on the assumption that a person is recovered 14 days after a particular date (see data notes tab), if they did not experience severe outcomes (hospitalized or deceased). Cases are under investigation and numbers may fluctuate as cases are resolved. Data included up to end of day August 05, 2020.
