WINNIPEG –
Manitoba has reported 14 new probable positive cases of COVID-19.
The cases, announced Wednesday morning, bring the total in the province to 35.

“These increased numbers are what we are preparing for and are not unexpected,” said Dr. Brent Roussin, the province’s chief public health administrator.

According to Roussin, the cases are all linked to displacement.

Of the 14 new cases, 11 are in Winnipeg. Two new cases occurred in the Southern region, the remainder in the Prairie region.

The province is also reporting the first child to contract the virus, a girl under the age of 10 in Winnipeg.

One person, a woman in her sixties, is hospitalized in intensive care.

Roussin says physical distance remains important for Manitobans.

“This is not the time to continue as usual, this is not the time to travel,” he said.

The province remains in a state of emergency for 30 days, limiting gatherings to 50 people or less.

It is recommended that any non-essential trip be canceled or postponed.

“We can, as a province, stop the transmission of this virus,” he said.

Travelers to the province, both national and international, must isolate themselves and monitor their symptoms for 14 days, including health care workers.

“It stays at home for 14 days,” said Roussin. “No races, no races. There is help if you need help with this. ”

Roussin also discussed reports from people coming to hospitals or medical facilities who have not been informed of recent travel history.

“If you are being treated in a hospital, you have to be honest about your recent trip,” he said. “We will not refuse you treatment, but we must be able to take these precautions if necessary.”

Over 4,200 tests were performed at the Cadham Provincial Laboratory
