Cases yest , 88 up 151% from last Tuesday's 35, and highest since Jun 24 (92). That means 7d average cases/d still climbing, now at 56.14, up from yest 48.57 (huge jump). % positivity also climbing, now at 1.40, up from yest 1.18% (also big jump) (highest since Jun 28). 2/
Delta: 19June 31 cases a 244% incr from last Monday's 9. % of total cases 31/61=51% compared to 9/36=25%. 18 June #s reported yest adjusted by 2 to 30, so yest was actually a 233% incr (not 211%). steep exponential growth seen on the 7d average chart. 3/
Hospitalizations: inpt -3 to 71 yest. ICU stubbornly flat at 27. 15.6% drop over the week though. Deaths: zero!! Yay!! 4/
Demographics: 5/
I've been pondering whether this new rise in cases can be solely blamed on the mass gathering Stampede AB just hosted. This would be suggested by the preponderance of cases in Calgary, and amongst 20-27s. In that case, we would start to see cases decline in about 10 days (yay!)6/
Unfortunately, I don't think this is the case. If you look at the demographics of tweet 7, you'll notice two things. We are now seeing rising cases in other demographics, both geographically (North and Edmonton in particular), and ages (5-19, and esp. 80+). 7/
One more thing that has been pointed out on twitter (@lisa_iannattone). Two weeks ago two provinces dropped their mask mandate. Now two provinces have substantially worrisome Rts of >1.5. These are the same provinces. And BC didn't host the Stampede. fin/
Thanks to @DFisman for the Rt data, and @CBCFletch and AB Health for the graphics. (double fin).

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/

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/
