Dr. Brent Roussin, Manitoba’s chief provincial public health officer, announced 14 new cases of COVID-19 had been recorded in Manitoba during Wednesday’s briefing, bringing the total of confirmed and probable cases in the province to 35.
Roussin also said that one case – a woman in her 60s who is hospitalized in Winnipeg — remains in critical condition and is currently in the ICU.
Roussin said the increase in cases was expected and community spread is also expected to eventually happen.
He added the province is working on increasing testing capacity.
The provincial government froze rent increases and postponed non-urgent rent evictions on Tuesday.
