Edmonton is confirming the majority of new COVID-19 cases in Alberta.

On Wednesday, August 12, Dr. Deena Hinshaw, the province's top doctor, announced in a press conference that 121 new cases were recorded in the province in the past 24 hours. Of those cases, 95 were Edmonton residents. 

What we know right now from the most recent cases, is they do continue to be in a younger age group.
