Looks like Edmonton is officially in the single digits. On Tuesday, May 5, the city of Edmonton only reported one new case of COVID-19 in the city. Although COVID-19 in Edmonton is still very much an ongoing concern, it appears that the number of new cases is on a downward trajectory. \nThe province announced a total of 57 new cases, which itself is the lowest number of new cases that Alberta has recorded in a week. \nAmong those cases, only one was detected in the Edmonton Health Zone.\nThe stats can be found on the Government of Alberta's official COVID-19 datasheet, where you can see that just one new case of the disease was reported on May 5, 2020. \nThis low number comes as Premier Jason Kenney has already outlined his plan to reopen the province this month. \nNon-urgent, scheduled surgeries have been given the go-ahead from the province. Whereas medical practitioners such as dentists and physiotherapists can also resume their services. \nThe next phase of Kenney's relaunch plan will kick off on May 14 when restaurants and retailers can begin reopening their doors. \n\nHiking is also back on the agenda, although there are a bunch of new rules to be followed if you're planning to toss on your hiking boots anytime soon. \nThe total number of COVID-19 cases in Edmonton has been reported to be 502, whereas Calgary bears the brunt of the cases in Alberta with about 3,917 in total. \nAccording to the Government of Alberta data, that's nearly 67% of the total number of cases in the province.\nIn terms of deaths, the province has registered a total of 106 deaths, with 72 in the Calgary Zone and 12 in the Edmonton Zone. \n\nEdmontonians may have this bit of good news to savour, but that doesn't mean we're out of the woods just yet. \nPhysical and social distancing measures are still meant to be followed, and our police officers will hand out fines in the thousands if you don't. \nThe province reached another milestone on May 5: there are now more recovered cases than active cases of COVID-19. \nRecovered cases stand at 3,219 and active cases stand at 2,568 as of Wednesday morning, May 6.\n\n \nSo far, our labs have completed 167,015 COVID-19 tests. \nIn fact, even Ontario Premier Doug Ford said that his province should model themselves after Alberta in terms of the testing.
