Newly Loosened Manitoba Restrictions Feb 12, 2021

Manitoba’s Current Position

In Manitoba (as of February 9, 2021),  5.4% of all Manitobans who get a covid-19 test are testing positive.  This is significantly lower than it was in December (14%).

There are 1, 597 active cases in Manitoba.  There have been 853 deaths in Manitoba, and currently, 15 people remain in Intensive Care.

Yesterday, the first case of the B1.1.7 (UK Variant) of Covid-19 was confirmed in Manitoba.  This variant is up to 70% more easily transmitted.   We are unsure whether it lasts longer on surfaces or is just physically different, but analysis shows that the quantity of virus in the body is simply higher.

“We as Manitobans have sacrificed to reduce the burden of COVID-19.

We must continue to maintain social distancing and be mindful as we see a loosening of restrictions.”

Dr. Premal Patel, Sabe Wellness
