Last week, the province asked its chief medical officer of health, Dr. Dina Hinshaw, estimating that the number of actual cases was more than 10 times that indicated by PCR results.

Alberta has now delivered more than eight million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, with 80 percent of the population receiving at least one dose and 73.5 percent receiving two shots.

More than 30 percent of Albertans have also received a third dose.

The number of non-vaccinated Albertans is about four-to-one who have had at least their first shot of vaccine, but are many times more likely to experience serious consequences due to COVID-19, including hospitalization or death. .
