Manitoba's COVID-19 numbers rise again in southern and western regions

Manitoba's COVID-19 numbers rise again in southern and western regions”

Forty-two new instances of COVID-19 were announced in Manitoba on Saturday, the province explained in a information bulletin, marking the province's maximum one-working day raise in new conditions of the ailment.

The province did not say irrespective of whether the new instances in the area announced Saturday are linked to a cluster.

The new cases were announced in a news bulletin Friday afternoon.

Seven people are reported being treated for the virus in hospital with one person now in intensive care.

In the meantime, companies are being questioned to only deliver workers for screening if they are symptomatic or if screening has been recommended by public wellbeing officials.

"I think it's important to look past the large number today to understand that a significant part of today's reported numbers is because there is testing going on on colonies and that's a good thing", Mr. Friesen said, urging people not to stigmatize anyone. "And they've been there in the past, as well, in the same way".

This means that Manitobans living in PMH are required to wear a mask at all public indoor places and at all indoor and outdoor public gatherings.

45 of the new cases are in the Prairie Mountain Health region, 16 new cases in the Southern Health region, nine cases in the Winnipeg Health region, one case in the Interlake-eastern Regional Health Authority and one case in the Northern Health Region. Wearing a mask is encouraged when physical distancing can't be practised.

Roussin isn't identifying the type of community for fear of stigmatization but says there are multiple Hutterite colonies that have positive cases.

He said the increased testing shows the communities are taking the disease seriously and are working with public health. In any setting where there's close, prolonged contact there's increased risk of transferring the virus.

Dr. Roussin said there was nothing to indicate any of the new cases Sunday were associated with an earlier outbreak in Brandon that affected dozens of people associated with a meat packing facility, 37 of which he said are still active.

Manitoba Public Health strongly encourages everyone to stay home when feeling ill, practice proper and hygiene, cover your cough and practice physical distancing when you are with people outside your household.

Twelve people with the ailment have died in Manitoba, which include four in the last 7 times.

That location also incorporates the metropolis of Brandon, which is the web page of a COVID-19 cluster that experienced achieved 66 identified cases as of Thursday.
