Wood Buffalo reports one recovery from COVID-19

Alberta Health says there are another 71 cases of COVID-19 in the province with no new deaths.

It's Alberta's largest single-day increase since 69 new cases of the novel coronavirus were reported back on May 16.

There are 559 active cases of COVID-19, 154 deaths, and 7354 recovered cases.

Hospitalization remains low with 41 Albertans now in hospitals with nine in intensive care. The Edmonton Zone has continued a streak with a higher active case count than the Calgary Zone, which has 216 active cases, and 4,971 recoveries. One more person was added to the ICU, bringing the amount of ICU patients from COVID-19 to nine. The average age of hospitalization with the disease is 62 years.

So far, 7,354 people have recovered from COVID-19 in Alberta.

The province must also deal with localized outbreaks in Calgary and Edmonton to explain the rise in new cases.
