    Alberta’s chief medical officer of health Dr. Deena Hinshaw will provide an update on COVID-19 in the province on Tuesday.

    The province identified 1,136 new cases of COVID-19 on Monday. Of those new cases, 679 were confirmed as variants of concern.

    There were 390 Albertans in hospital with COVID-19, with 90 patients in intensive care.

    Monday also marked the opening of rapid flow-through COVID-19 vaccination sites at the Edmonton Expo Centre and the Telus Convention Centre in Calgary. Premier Jason Kenney announced earlier Monday that both sites would be open by appointment only, offering the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine to those 55 to 64 years old.

    Kenney reiterated Monday that Alberta is in a race between variants and the vaccine.

    “Right now, the variants are winning that race,” he said.

    “The third wave is hitting us hard and cases continue to rise sharply.”

    The premier said Alberta’s COVID-19 numbers are going up “at a pretty alarming pace,” and on track to hit 2,000 average daily cases in the near future, and 20,000 active cases.

    “Based upon the active case-to-hospitalization ratio, that would imply about 500 to 600 people in hospital.”
