Are the new tightened health restrictions in Alberta working to stop the spike of COVID-19 cases in the third wave?

Updated restrictions were announced May 4 by Premier Jason Kenney that many people say are too tight.

Other people, like medical professional and physicians, say the numbers would be lower if the restrictions happened sooner.
