Active cases of Covid-19 in the Pincher Creek area have climbed back up to match the record high of 133 reached last Wednesday.

Its rate of 1,594 active cases per 100,000 population remains highest in the south zone and fifth highest in Alberta.
 
Over the past four days, 54 Covid-related deaths were reported to Alberta Health.

Four of these affected the south zone communities of Pincher Creek, Cardston County, Lethbridge and Brooks. The deceased are a woman in her 40s, along with a woman and two men in their 80s.
 
Another pandemic high was reached with a positivity rate of 47.6 per cent in the south yesterday.

The average over the past week has been 42.5 for the zone compared to 36.7 for the province. 
 
Provincial hospitalizations increased by 186 over the past four days, with 26 of those being in the south zone.

Recovery is where the highest numbers are being reported — more than 21,000 over the past four days.

Statistics in this post are current as of Jan. 21-24, 2022 and were updated Jan. 25, 2022
 
This Covid-19 update provides details for Pincher Creek, Crowsnest Pass and all communities in the south zone, and more general information for other zones and Alberta as a whole. It includes new cases and positivity rates, active cases, recoveries and recovery rates, hospitalizations and ICU admissions, deaths and mortality rates, R values, outbreaks, school information, immunization updates, Alberta Health video and more, compiled from Alberta Health and Alberta Health Services data.
 
Updates are provided every day that Alberta Health releases new data. The goal of our posts is to provide all of the detailed information in an easy-to-understand format and all in one place. Thank you for supporting our advertisers and for choosing Shootin' the Breeze as an information source.
 
The zone of current hospitalization and current ICU admission are based on a patient's location of hospitalization, not the zone of patient residence. For example, a Pincher Creek resident hospitalized in Calgary is categorized as an active case in the Pincher Creek region, and their hospitalization statistic will show in the Calgary zone.
 
Alberta Health shares information regarding deaths as soon as it is available. There can be delays in death reporting to Alberta Health or in post-mortem confirmation of a death having Covid-19 as a contributing cause. The number reported on any given day is typically a total from multiple days.
