Alberta reports 103 COVID-19 cases, 1 death
EDMONTON -- Alberta is reporting more than 100 COVID-19 cases in the last 24 hours.
Chief Medical Officer of Health Dr. Deena Hinshaw reported 103 new infections Thursday, but active cases fell to 1,084.

There are 43 patients in hospital, including 12 in intensive care.
Edmonton's active case count decreased by 10 to 561, but the entire city remains under Alberta Health's watch with a 54.9 active case rate per 100,000 residents.
