Taking to Twitter, Dr Deena Hinshaw, confirmed 550 new cases variants of concern. A full update by Dr. Hinshaw will be presented Monday.

"In the meantime, continue to respect health measures in place to slow the spread of COVID-19 and protect each other", Dr. Hinshaw wrote on Twitter.

Although the Alberta government is only providing preliminary data on COVID-19 over the Easter weekend, it's evident the data is not trending in the right direction for people exhausted of the pandemic.

For the second day in a row, Alberta Health is reporting 1,100 new cases of COVID-19. Dr. Hinshaw said the outbreak is linked to a returning traveller.

The last time the province reported more than 1,000 cases in a day was January 6, with 1,123.

We are now investigating a significant #COVID19AB outbreak in Alberta involving P.1 variants of concern (the variant that originated in Brazil), linked to a returning traveller.

The number of hospitalizations, according to Hinshaw, remains stable.

It's not known how many, if any, new deaths from COVID-19 were reported in the previous 24 hours as they were not included in the update. On Thursday it was reported 1,994 deaths have been attributed to the virus in Alberta.

On April 2, 10,000 vaccine doses were administered and to date, 685,000 doses have been administered in Alberta.
