Did Alberta Health Services CEO lie about how how overwhelmed ICU’s are in Alberta? What’s her motive?

Alberta Health Service CEO Dr. Verna Yiu, during a COVID-19 press conference on September 23, made multiple claims about hospital capacity that could be classified as misinformation based on AHS data showing the narrative that hospitals could be overwhelmed is heavily exaggerated and potentially outright false.

David Dickson, a former Liverpool police officer who now runs a cybersecurity firm in Alberta, created a video matching Dr. Yiu’s statements in the press conference against AHS’ up-to-date data which deviates from the figures she reports as being true. 

The most egregious of Dr. Yiu’s claim is that currently, 310 Albertans are in ICU and that Alberta has never had that many patients in ICU in its entire history, despite AHS’ own data showing that the province consistently has had more patients in ICU on average year-to-year even before COVID was a public health threat.
