Look behind you.
And here is the bigger problem for Alberta. Peak deaths is about 2 to 3 weeks after peak cases. Ontario cases peaked about 3 weeks ago and deaths are just starting to come down. Alberta hasn't hit peak cases yet
I will get back to you in about 3 weeks with that.

Maybe the real solution for Covid-ravaged Alberta would be to ALSO shut down Costco. Obviously the politicians and citizens of Alberta have failed miserably so far...as that picture so clearly shows. Haven't those eager Alberta shoppers learned ANYTHING?

I don't know what the rules are and how they are applied in Alberta for Costo and similar stores. In Quebec, when we were on strict lockdown, you could buy only foods an "essential" commodities. Social distancing inside and outside (making the line) was enforced, quantity of customers inside was (and is still), restricted. Usually a trip at Costco or other groceries' store is less than 1 hour. You do not speak much and you do not have to yell. In bars, it is crowdy, noisy, people are yelling to cover music or ambiant noise and of course they are there for several hours. Restaurants have a different picture but you can not wear your mask and eat. Unless you are alone you will talk a lot. As the contamination occurs through the air, well it is far from a safe situation. The cases going down here we will most likely open the patio service soon. With 400 cases daily by million in Alberta, 200 in Ontario and around 100 in Québec (statistic from may 11th), Alberta has to improve a lot its numbers and its way to handle the COVID situation before aspiring to return to a satisfying way of life for all. Another thing that Costco and other did was opening earlier and having the first 2 hours restricted to older peoples. That was when vaccination was just beginning. Now that older people received at least their first shots (I think 80% for 70 years old and over), I don't know if this accommodation is still going on. There are different ways to address the problem but a clear leadership is needed and a captain has to cruise the ship. Everybody has to row in the same direction.

Having 200 people in a lineup outside makes no sense, you have winds going in every direction. As for cases they have dropped from over 2,000 to around 1,500, baby steps.
If I recall correctly stores can have 10% of fire regulations, think that is what they are calling for plus only essential items sold, many roped off areas.

That is why wearing a mask helps a lot. And at 2M virus are diluted a lot in fact it is like the sound. When you double the distance, there are 4 time less.

Alberta: Update monday, may 17
Intensive care units (ICUs) are 40 per cent above their usual capacity during the third wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, Premier Jason Kenney announced Monday afternoon, with 241 patients currently in ICUs across the province. “Normally our health care system is set up to care for about 170 people in ICU,” Kenney said. “We are about over 40 per cent above our normal maximum capacity, and our pre COVID record high for ICU admissions.”

The UCP is ruining Alberta. The next provincial election cannot come soon enough. If, by some miracle, the Liberals win seats here in September, it will be because of the rising anti-UCP sentiment.

WHERE IS JASON KENNEY? Hiding in vacation while cases are dangerously rising.

On the total absence of Alberta PM on media, an independent group of experts, mainly doctors, take the leadership and gives information to the population. Alberta has highest cases, stopped tracing on COVID. He should resign if he doesn't want to do his job.

Alberta leader apologizes, imposes restrictions and passport.

The leader of the Canadian province of Alberta is apologizing for his handling of the pandemic and now says he’s now reluctantly introducing a vaccine passport and imposing a mandatory work from home order two months after lifting nearly all restrictions.

The leader of the Canadian province of Alberta apologized Wednesday for his handling of the pandemic and said he is reluctantly introducing a vaccine passport and imposing a mandatory work-from-home order two months after lifting nearly all restrictions.

Alberta declared a public health emergency as Premier Jason Kenney said hospitals might run out of beds and staff in intensive care units within 10 days.

It was time you woke up, Jason Kenney.

I said this is another thread.

We have models of what works (Denmark).
We have models of failure (Alberta and parts of the US).

Why does this have to be so complicated ?

Head doctor of Alberta was interviewed by CBC. She apologized for her role in the disaster. It must be gut wrenching for a doctor to have to say that. I really felt sorry for her.

It's been clear for a long long time that many people in Alberta have philosophies different from most Canadians. The stupidity in Alberta's total mishandling of the pandemic right from the beginning has shown that the philosophies of many Albertans are unwise and dangerous.

The only good thing i will say about Kenney is that he apologized and finally took some responsibility.
