The PA Gospel Worship event in Prince Albert is the origin of at least 79 first and second generation cases across the province, primarily in the north. Many of the newer cases and outbreaks arising in the north are now third generation cases from this event. Note that “superspreader” events are not limited to those who attended the event itself, but quickly transmit in local settings.
