COVID-19 BULLETIN #151

Province of Manitoba Media Bulletin


August 9, 2020


Public health officials advise the current five-day COVID-19 test positivity rate is 1.45 per cent. 

Thirty-five 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 542. 

The data shows there were:

• 20 new cases in the Prairie Mountain Health region; 

• 10 new cases in the Southern Health – Santé Sud health region; 

• four new cases in the Winnipeg health region; and 

• one new case in the Interlake-Eastern heath region. 

While many of today’s cases appear to be linked to known clusters in the Southern Health – Santé Sud health region and Brandon, or are close contacts of a previously announced case, preliminary information suggests that there may be a small number of cases of unknown acquisition in these areas. 

Case investigations are ongoing to determine possible COVID-19 exposures. When the investigations are completed, additional information will be provided as needed to inform people of any public health risks.  

The data also shows:

• six current hospitalizations, with three individuals in intensive care;

• 182 active cases and 352 individuals have recovered from COVID-19; and

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

Preliminary testing numbers show an additional 756 laboratory tests were completed on Saturday, bringing the total number of tests completed since early February to 100,830.
