13 new cases of COVID-19 in Manitoba

By | September 2, 2020

Thirteen new cases of COVID-19 were announced in Manitoba on Wednesday.

However, a case previously identified on Aug. 30 was removed from the total, the province said in a news release, after it was determined to be from out of province. That brings the total net new cases for Wednesday to 12.

There are now 454 active cases in the province.

On Tuesday, 18 new cases of the novel coronavirus were reported, and provincial data showed 14 people were in hospital, up from 11 the day before.

That’s the highest daily number of hospitalizations the province has seen to date. The previous high was 12 hospitalizations in April.

Also on Tuesday, management of the Fred Douglas Lodge personal care home in Winnipeg announced a staff member tested positive for COVID-19.

The City of Brandon also announced two members of its workforce tested positive for COVID-19, including a transit worker and a member of Brandon Fire and Emergency Services.
