Public health officials advise the current five-day COVID-19 test positivity rate is 0.44 per cent. Two new cases of the virus have been identified as of 9:30 a.m. today. This brings the total number of lab-confirmed positive and probable positive cases in Manitoba to 444. 

The data shows there were:

• two new cases in the Winnipeg health region – a female in her 20s and a male in his 30s.

Case investigations are ongoing. When completed, additional information will be provided as needed to inform people of any public health risks.

The data also shows:

• nine current hospitalizations, with five individuals in intensive care;

• 94 active cases and 342 individuals have recovered from COVID-19; and

• the number of deaths due to COVID-19 is eight.

An additional 990 laboratory tests completed Tuesday bringing the total number of tests completed since early February to 94,984.

Public health officials are advising that potential exposure to COVID-19 may have occurred on Air Canada flight AC 873 from Frankfurt, Germany, to Toronto (rows unknown) on July 26 and Air Canada flight AC 265 from Toronto to Winnipeg on July 26 (rows 22 to 28). 

Individuals on these flights are advised to self-isolate for 14 days following the flight and monitor for symptoms. Passengers on these flights, but not in the affected seats, should self-monitor for symptoms and self-isolate if they develop.

Additional information about flights and affected rows is updated on the website at www.manitoba.ca/covid19/flights.html when available. 

While public health assesses the risk to others as low, it is sharing this information to ensure people are aware and know to seek testing if symptoms develop.
