Oct. 6 south-zone Covid-19 update
Alberta's active cases drop by over 500

Covid-19 Update
By Jenaya Launstein



Alberta's active Covid-19 cases dropped by over 500 today, with the south zone seeing a decrease of 70. If current trends continue, it is possible the south zone could be below 2,000 active cases as soon as tomorrow.

The Pincher Creek area counted seven new cases, but thanks to nine recoveries the active cases dropped by two. Crowsnest Pass recorded two new cases and one recovery.

Today's update includes the death of a woman in her 60s from Lethbridge County. We extend our condolences to her family and friends.

Statistics in this post are current as of Oct. 5 and were updated Oct. 6, 2021

This Covid-19 update provides details for Pincher Creek, Crowsnest Pass and all communities in the south zone, and more general information for other zones and Alberta as a whole. It includes new cases and positivity rates, active cases, recoveries and recovery rates, hospitalizations and ICU admissions, deaths and mortality rates, R values, outbreaks, school information, immunization updates, Alberta Health video and more, compiled from Alberta Health and Alberta Health Services data.

Updates are provided every day that Alberta Health releases new data. The goal of our posts is to provide all of the detailed information in an easy-to-understand format and all in one place. Thank you for supporting our advertisers and for choosing Shootin' the Breeze as an information source.

"The zone of current hospitalization and current ICU admission are based on a patient's location of hospitalization, not the zone of patient residence. For example, a Pincher Creek resident hospitalized in Calgary is categorized as an active case in the Pincher Creek region, and their hospitalization statistic will show in the Calgary zone.

Alberta Health shares information regarding deaths as soon as it is available. There can be delays in death reporting to Alberta Health or in post-mortem confirmation of a death having Covid-19 as a contributing cause. The number reported on any given day is typically a total from multiple days."
