Hospitals & Fatalities

What is the AHS definition of a COVID hospitalization? How are deaths reported and tracked?

Data Visualizers

With PowerBi (think Excel on steroids) you can analyze the government data since May 2020. All data is sourced directly from the Alberta Government.

Inconsistency of Information

Daily reporting of hospital counts remains inconsistent. Whatever happened to the data that supported the closure of businesses?

Covid 19

Cases vs Hospitalizations

Note: The data visualizations are best viewed on a desktop/tablet device.

This visualization tool allows for the dissection of Alberta Covid statistics week-over-week. The tool can be used to compare hospitalization rates and case counts over the last several waves.

September 19: In the last two weeks:

  • 53% of new hospitalizations are over the age of 60, despite this age group being over 88% double-vaxxed

  • 71% of ICU admissions were over the age of 50.

  • The 50+ age groups only account for 16% of new covid cases.

Table 13 - Total Hospitalizations, ICU admissions and deaths (ever) among COVID-19 cases in Alberta by age group

The government presents this table in a static format with no way to review or compare values. This table is captured week over week and the differences in values make up the calculations.

Admissions per 100 Cases

The data visualizations are best viewed on a desktop/tablet device.

This visualization tool provides an overview of the hospital and ICU admissions per 100 confirmed cases of COVID. The data is presented as the weekly case rate change and the total average admissions since May 2020.

An interesting observation is admission rate per 100 cases has remained relatively flat across several age groups despite the delta variant becoming the dominant strain at the beginning of July.
