COVID-19 in Alberta

Highlights

Cases



Figure 1: 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).



Figure 2: Cumulative COVID-19 cases in Alberta by route of suspected acquisition. Only includes COVID-19 cases where case report forms have been received.



Figure 3: COVID-19 cases in Alberta by day and case status. Probable cases include cases where the lab confirmation is pending. Current day is partial.

Geographies can be displayed by municipality or local geographic area (LGA). When viewing by municipality, regions are defined by rural municipalities, city boundaries, and urban service areas; smaller regions (i.e. towns, villages, and reserves) are incorporated into the corresponding rural area. Cases without a postal code or incorrect postal codes are not included. Location information missing/invalid for: 35 case(s).
