- On Friday, Manitoba new cases is an Alaram of 4th wave in the state.
- The recent covid cases drop by 0.1 per can’t. Things needs to be handle carefully.
Manitoba’s daily COVID-19 case count reached its highest point in the fourth wave on Friday, with 193 cases — the highest daily case count since mid-June.
That record-breaking day coincided with the Manitoba government announcing stricter vaccine requirements for indoor youth sports across the province, as well as limits on religious activities in the Southern Health district, just three days after the previous high of the fourth wave.
Before announcing the new limits, Dr Brent Roussin, Chief Provincial Public Health Officer, presented updated pandemic modelling, which showed a continuous increase in daily case counts, including hospital admissions, if the province did nothing to stop the spread.
“Without any additional constraints,” he continued, “this model, at around the 50% level, would give us roughly 200 instances a day at the beginning of December and escalating subsequently through mid-December.”
According to provincial officials, Manitoba has detected 359 new COVID-19 cases and one death from the sickness in the last two days, with 166 of those confirmed on Thursday.
Due to Remembrance Day, there were no updates on Thursday.
The model also demonstrated a consistent increase in hospital admissions. Without further constraints, the province’s intensive care units are expected to receive three admissions every day.
“And, based on previous waves, that’s not a sustainable number,” Roussin added.
As per the news release issued by the province on Friday, the latest fatality was that of an 80-year-old man from the Prairie Mountain region. This brings the total number of people who have died from the sickness in the province to 1,269 since the outbreak began.
Manitoba’s recent 5 day test positivity rate is 6.1 per cent, a modest decrease from the 6.2 per cent recorded on Wednesday.
There are currently 145 individuals in hospitals due to COVID-19, an increase of two from Wednesday. This includes 30 people in intensive care units, which has increased by two.
In addition, the province has linked 206 additional COVID-19 cases to coronavirus types of concern.
As per the update on the province’s online variation dashboard, there are currently 198 cases linked to an unnamed variant and eight classed as the B.1.617.2, or delta, variant.
According to the provincial vaccine dashboard, as of Friday, 87% of eligible Manitobans had got at least the first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, and 84.2 per cent had received two doses.
Anyone born on or after December 31, 2009, is eligible for the first and second doses of the COVID-19 vaccination. In addition, the province has increased eligibility for third doses to anybody over the age of 18.
