Canada, Alberta: Coronavirus Covid-19 deaths: 11

Alberta Premier Jason Kenney confirmed 117 new cases of COVID-19 in the province. Much information was released from a large number of backlogged tests conducted by health officials. Kenney said Wednesday the backlog developed because of a shortage in reagents, an essential element in the testing. The province will be receiving new rapid testing kits within days.

Truck drivers put in many hours to provide essential products. It is important to keep operating the supply lines.

More information will be used to trace, control and contain positive Coronavirus Covid-19 cases.

Total Canadian cases:

Confirmed: 9,712
Deaths: 111
Recovered: 1,528

  1. Alberta has surpassed 1,000 cases of Coronavirus Covid-19. A total of 18 Albertans have now died from the virus. The City of Calgary is cancelling all public events until at least June 30. All Calgary playgrounds and skateparks are closed. People are encouraged to create greater distances between people.

    Be careful! A virus is a submicroscopic infectious agent that replicates only inside the living cells of an organism. The Coronavirus Covid-19 virus can infect humans, cats and dogs. There have been cases where humans infect their pets. However, there was no evidence of the virus passing from animals to humans.

    Since Dmitri Ivanovsky's 1892 article describing a non-bacterial pathogen infecting tobacco plants, and the discovery of the tobacco mosaic virus by Martinus Beijerinck in 1898, about 5,000 virus species have been described in detail. The interesting study of viruses is known as virology, a subspeciality of microbiology.
