Alberta Death Rate up +45% in last 13 Days

Albertans dying from COVID-19 at more than three times the average Canadian rate

According to the CBC and Global News, the death rate in Alberta due to Covid-19 continues to climb. The death rate is driven by the unvaccinated. Alberta records 34 new COVID-19 deaths as ICU admissions increase. What can you do to help curb the tide of deaths in Alberta?

  1. Get Vaccinated. Remember even if you are vaccinated, you can still catch and carry the virus, so vaccinations alone are not enough when Alberta has a record number of people who will not get the vaccine.
  2. Wear a mask at all times when in public. Masks can protect you and others. Being vaccinated isn’t enough, so take the precaution of wearing a mask. It’s the law.
  3. Social distance. Even with a mask, social distance. Love your fellow man enough to stay away. Don’t engage in activities you don’t have to, but when you do have to go out, keep your distance.
  4. Wash your hands. Sing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star and rinse on the chorus! Sanitize when you can’t wash. Do so often.

Our hospitals are overrun with young Covid-19 patients, 45 and over. These are people who are unvaccinated and are leaving behind young children, bereft spouses and a grieving community. Encourage your loved ones to get vaccinated and do your part by doing everything you can to prevent the spread of this deadly virus.
