Alberta families, businesses and frontline workers are paying the price for the provincial government’s inaction when it comes to COVID-19, says Alberta’s official opposition.
“Today we saw 2,433 new COVID cases. That’s the highest total we’ve ever seen during this pandemic by a large margin, and more than a 21 per cent increase over yesterday. The three highest case counts of the pandemic in Alberta have all been in the last three days,” NDP critic for health David Shepherd said in a statement Saturday.
“We now have 22,504 active cases and an alarming number of regions in Alberta that lead the country in active cases per capita.”
Red Deer rose to 733 active cases on Saturday.
