Manitoba Chief Public Health Officer Brent Roussin released the latest COVID-19 numbers yesterday afternoon. He reports 4 new cases bringing their total to 221, 69 individuals are listed as recovered, there are 149 active cases and the number of deaths remains at 3.
There are still three confirmed cases in the north. 20 health care workers have tested positive for COVID-19 none in the Northern Health Region and steps continue to protect staff and patients.
Roussin reminds Manitobans not to interpret the current case numbers to mean our risk is reduced as the numbers may be a reflection of the benefit of our enhanced social distancing strategies and the hard work Manitobans have put into that but he added now is not the time to let our guard down.
Saskatchewan reports 11 new confirmed cases bringing their total to 271 with four in the far north, 165 cases are considered active, 15 more people have recovered bringing the total to 103.
