Coronavirus: Alberta reports 364 new cases, puts voluntary restrictions on Edmonton

Alberta’s chief medical officer of health Dr. Deena Hinshaw on Thursday announced new voluntary restrictions for the City of Edmonton as the province reported 364 new cases of COVID-19, with 276 in the city.

Hinshaw said the restrictions, effective Thursday, are voluntary because there is sufficient hospital beds and capacity. All families and private social gatherings should be limited to no more than 15 people, but does impact schools or formal gatherings where the organizer is ensuring COVID-19 measures are implemented, such as theatres or worship services.

Masks are being recommended to be worn in all indoor work settings, except when alone in work spaces. As well, Hinshaw asked people to limit their cohorts to three: their core household, their school cohort and no more than one other sport or social group.

Alberta’s top doctor said there are currently 1,251 active cases in the Edmonton zone and the positivity rate increased to four percent. She said 11 per cent of active cases in Edmonton worked or attended social gatherings while symptomatic, a fact she said was concerning, with two of five cases in the city exposed by a close contact.

    10% of the planet's population has CV19 and is a benign virus. This is a Crime against humanity. Suicides have tripled, 19 people needlessly die of heart attacks every day in the U.K. because of lack of hospital treatment. And everyday we hear more lies about cases equaling a pandemic. We have a pandemic of liars in government

    Quebec cases are way up too… way beyond Alberta. And since I heard that Covid has been found in human feces, I have a hunch that Quebecers would be particularly interested in how butt plugs could be used to stop the spread of Covid through the city sewer systems there. Can you please run a story on this?

    voluntary restrictions for the City of Edmonton??? It will never ever work regarding Edmontonians. It's the only incompetent window dressing from the PC government as usual. They just pretend to do something, but somebody else moves the puppet's strings.

    Your daily reminder that TWICE as many people died from influenza and pneumonia in Alberta two years than have died this year from COVID. And TWICE as many died from suicide two years ago than have died this year from COVID.

    567 — number of people in Alberta who died from suicide in 2018
    560 — number of people in Alberta who died from influenza and pneumonia in 2018
    283 — number of people in Alberta who died from COVID in 2020 through October 8th

    But remember, it's COVID you need to be panicked about. It's COVID that is the big killer in the province, not suicide or influenza and pneumonia.

    This is high treason. We now have a CASEDEMIC not a PLANDEMIC. Kary Mullis, the Nobel prize winning inventor of the PT – PCR test warned in the wrong hands his invention could be used for manipulative means. He said his invention is not for diagnosing just amplifying. This is exactly what is going on today. These health officials and politicians should serve time in prison for this fraud.

    They use a faulty test kit for which they shouldn't be using . Plus they fudge,alter the numbers. Common numbers they use is 13, 19 …just like CoviD 19, 33, 38, 42, 47, 56, 201…just like "EvenT 2O1"

    People should be made to wear masks, by law. Saying some people have trouble breathing when wearing a mask. Well I'm sorry if a person has trouble breathing wearing a paper mask, then they should be in hospital because they are nearly dead.

    It's official. It's an epidemic of positive test results. It so happens the test is crap and can detect other coronavirus or a vaccination shot.

    Do your numbers include asymptomatic people who were randomly tested?
    Why are you taking 4 months to test EVERY incarcerated person in Alberta? Given the unreliability of the test, we are being lied to. Stop testing those who are not sick.
