Cases linked to the church

Two of the 75 people have recovered and no deaths have been recorded at this time. 

Just a week ago, the province confirmed that the church was the source of 15 cases, so a jump of over 60 cases has taken place in the matter of a week. 

Edmonton has become the city with the highest number of active cases in Canada. Dr. Deena Hinshaw said the majority of new cases are linked to social gatherings, including weddings, funerals, private parties, or prayer groups.
