There are 16 new cases of COVID-19 in Manitoba, Chief Provincial Public Health Officer Dr. Brent Roussin announced on Monday.

There are 196 active cases, Roussin said at a news conference with Health Minister Cameron Friesen, and 354 people have recovered from the virus.

Of the 16 new cases, 11 are in the Prairie Mountain Health Region and five are in the Southern Health region.

There are 64 cases within a cluster in Brandon, Roussin said. There were frequent connections between community members, he said, but he isn’t aware of a specific community event where people transmitted the disease.

“We are seeing early signs of community transmission,” he said.
