COVID-19 numbers continue downward trend but province passes 3,000-death mark

Oct 21, 2021

Article content Alberta Health on Wednesday reported 18 more Albertans have died from the virus, bringing the total number of deaths due to the respiratory disease to 3,006. We apologize, but this video has failed to load. Try refreshing your browser, or COVID-19 numbers continue downward trend but province passes 3,000-death mark Back to video In the past month, 461 people in the province died from COVID-19 in a fourth wave that has seen fatalities dramatically increase. The toll in the past month represents nearly 15.5 per cent of all COVID-19 deaths in the province, where Albertans have been dying at three times the average national rate in recent weeks. But in that same month, active cases in Alberta have fallen by nearly half, from 20,614 to 10,824. And hospitalizations continue to drop — from 964 the previous day to 928, while there are now 203 ICU patients, down by 15. Alberta Health Services officials have said some of that freed-up ICU space is due to deaths. Advertisement Article content It’s important the COVID-19 dead be regarded as more than just numbers — something their families, friends and health-care workers know well, said Dr. Ilan Schwartz, an Edmonton infectious disease specialist. “Health-care workers have seen far too many of those faces,” said Schwartz. “It’s important to remember these were individuals who were loved.” He said the diligent work of medical professionals and public health restrictions ensured those numbers aren’t far greater. But he said it’s likely the official number of deaths doesn’t represent all the fatalities linked to the disease. People who died after being denied medical care due to the strain the virus has put on hospitals should also be considered. Advertisement Article content “There’s a considerably higher burden of death indirect of COVID-19 among people who have been unable to get care, or had surgeries cancelled, or decisions made to forego more aggressive interventions because of the realities facing the health-care system,” said Schwartz, adding the UCP government’s failure to address the pandemic’s fourth wave at a timely juncture weighs heavily. “We won’t have a proper reckoning of the true devastation that’s been brought by policies that have allowed (COVID-19) to tear through communities . . . we’ve become desensitized to a dozen people a day dying from this disease that’s completely preventable.” COVID-19 case counts, hospitalizations and intensive care admissions were lower on Monday, Oct. 18, 2021, than last Friday, according to Alberta Health data. Photo by supplied /Alberta Health Services The vast majority of the latest deaths were among the elderly, though a woman in her 40s in the Central Zone, a man in his 30s in the South Zone and man in his 50s in the North Zone were included. Advertisement Article content Of deaths between the ages of 60 to 79 years, the most vulnerable age group, 76.8 to 82 per cent weren’t fully vaccinated. The high death toll, particularly that of the fourth wave, is “unconscionable” after the UCP government’s “open for summer” declaration, said NDP health critic David Shepherd. “It’s because (Premier) Jason Kenney chose to make a reckless gamble and then sat on his hands in the month of August while these numbers continued to grow — and this is the tragic result,” he said. After a decent start during the pandemic’s first wave, Kenney’s government began neglecting its duties and pandered to those opposed to crucial public health measures, said Shepherd. “He called it influenza and said ‘I regret I closed down those business,’ ” he said. Advertisement Article content On Tuesday, Kenney noted the measures the government has taken in recent weeks, from vaccination incentives to a provincial indoor masking mandate and introducing a form of vaccine passport. He said those measures are now paying dividends as COVID numbers drop. Premier Jason Kenney provides an update on COVID-19 and the ongoing work to protect public health at the McDougall Centre in Calgary on Tuesday, October 19, 2021. Photo by Darren Makowichuk/Postmedia “These were all tough but necessary steps in response to the crisis that we were facing three, four weeks ago,” he said. “I told Albertans on Sept. 15 that how bad the situation becomes and how long it lasts is up to each and every one of us, and Albertans have risen to the challenge.” He noted Alberta’s ICUs are at 75 per cent of an emergency surge capacity, down from 97 per cent six weeks ago. And he said the hospitalizations are 15 per cent less than the peak of the fourth wave on Sept. 27. “All of this is good news but we still have a long way to go,” said Kenney. Among Albertans, 77.9 per cent are now fully-vaccinated while 86.2 per cent have received one dose, says Alberta Health.
