In the Edmonton Zone, there are more active cases of variants than the previously dominant strain of COVID-19.

Several doctors from Calgary and Edmonton say public-health restrictions introduced by the Alberta government will not be enough to reduce spread of COVID-19 during the province's third wave. Morinville has 20 active cases, up from 14 yesterday.

In Sturgeon County, another five active cases were added, bringing the total of active cases to 44.

The province has 11,464 active cases of COVID-19.

The province reported 1,351 new cases, the biggest one-day increase since December 18, bringing its total to 155,476 infections since the start of the pandemic.

Four of the new variant cases were of the B.1.351 South African variant and eight were the P.1 Brazilian variant, bringing their total identified cases to 26 and 23, respectively.

The test positivity rate dipped slightly in the last 24 hours to 9.6 per cent on Wednesday from 10.2 per cent the day before, however, over 5,000 more tests were completed in Wednesday's update.

Hospitalizations increased to 333 on Wednesday, with 79 of those patients receiving care in intensive-care units.
