COVID-19: 373 new cases reported today

Only 3 new COVID-19 cases in Northern Health

1,496 cases of COVID-19 are now active in the province (69 of those are in Northern Health). The woman in her 80s was linked to the outbreak in the Seven Oaks General Hospital 3U4-7 Unit, the release said. That's down from a rate of 5.82 percent for May 16-22 and 7.76 percent for the period of May 9-15. The province's rate is 9.7 per cent, while Winnipeg's rate is 9.2 per cent.

On Wednesday morning, there were 144 new cases with 80 in Winnipeg, 29 in the South, 18 in the North, nine in Prairie Mountain and eight in the Interlake.

The number of people hospitalized with COVID-19 increased by three to 139, while the number of patients in intensive care decreased by three to 39.

Manitoba's current death toll from COVID-19 is 1,111.

There are now 273 Manitobans hospitalized with COVID-19 in Manitoba and neighbouring provinces.

There are 2,799 active cases and 50,829 Manitobans who have recovered. That's still almost double the province's pre-pandemic ICU capacity of 72 patients, the spokesperson said.

In Sheboygan County, not only were there no new cases reported, but their total number of cases also went down.

Much of that progress has been credited to B.C.'s immunization program, which has now administered at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine to about 76 per cent of the province's adult population.

There were no new recoveries either, so the pandemic totals no sit at 13,873 confirmed cases, 13,679 recoveries, and 47 cases remain active.
