Against my better judgement, I figure it is time to relaunch the daily COVID # analysis. Because sure as heck looks like we're in the throes of early exponential growth. But man, I hope I'm wrong. 1/
Cases yest 63, a 75% rise over last Monday's 36. This is the fourth day in a row of substantial growth. 7 day average up to 49/day from a low of 39/d on July 13th. % positivity up to 1.24% highest since July 3rd (1.26%) 2/
Delta: on 18th July cases of 28, a 211% increase over last week's 9. %of total cases 28/41=68%, compared to last week's 9/32=28%. 7 day average up to 18.7, highest since July 1st (20.1). 3/
Hospitalizations: inpts -1 to 71, ICU -1 to 27. Both remarkably flat recently. 2 new deaths, 60y.o.M in North, 70 y.o. M, in South. 4/
Demographics. You do the analysis. 5/
Is this the fourth wave? Certainly looks like Calgary is in trouble. Vaccines are amazing, but we still have 1.57M completely unvaccinated Albertans, including all kids <12. And Delta is a beast. I'll keep doing these posts until things turn around, hopefully sooner than later.6/
Why care when the absolute #s are so small? For exponential growth, the win occurs when we go big, early, on restrictions, before things get out of hand (see: NS). Do I think AB will act early and prevent a fourth wave? No. Should they? Yes. #COVIDzero. fin/

Back from vacation (no, I'm not back in my happy zen place... thanks climate crisis, for wrecking things). But now that Stampede is over seems like a good time for a check in on the current COVID statistics. 1/

Summary of my thoughts on today's restrictions: 1/
First off, I'm all for opening up, but safely, and an acknowledgement of risks. See Ontario's plan for a better planned, cautious return to activity. Especially note using 2nd dose %population as a criteria:… 2/
Next: the good. Happy they are starting with relaxation of outdoor restrictions. Outdoors is really really safe. We should be encouraging more outdoor interaction, aside from prolonged, face to face, maskless interactions. 3/

Here's your AB COVID # analysis for Tuesday May 25 1/
Yest's cases 394, a 57.4% from last Monday's 925. 7day ave decrease of 48.2% v. similar compared to last 2 days. Stunning drop continues. Positivity 9.85% compared to last week's 11.45% so average keeps dropping. 2/
B1617 variant now up to 29... none new reported today but certainly a dark purple footprint on @ByMatthewBlack chart on recent days. Reminder that since the gov't has foregone 100% screening of +ves for variants this data is extremely incomplete. 3/
