Coronavirus: Defiance against restrictions in rural Alberta where cases are rising

Total COVID-19 cases in Alberta continue to trend down. But outside the province’s major cities, the rate of spread in the community is on the rise.

In the week of Jan. 18 to 24, the R value (or rate of transmission) was 0.77, compared to 0.81 and 0.83 in Edmonton and Calgary respectively. One week later, the R value for rural Alberta had jumped to 0.9 and as of the week of Feb. 1 to 7, the rate of transmission was at 0.96.

Transmission is highest in central and southern Alberta, with the R value actually being above one in the southern portion of the province, according to biostatistician Ryan Imgrud.
