COVID-19 BULLETIN #63

Province of Manitoba Media Bulletin


April 26, 2020


Public health officials advise four new cases of COVID-19 were identified as of 9:30 a.m. today, bringing the total number of lab-confirmed positive and probable positive cases in Manitoba to 271. 

The data also shows:

• eight individuals are currently hospitalized, which includes two individuals in intensive care; 

• 66 active cases and 199 individuals who have recovered from COVID-19; and

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

As of yesterday, an additional 407 laboratory tests were performed. There were an additional 165 tests performed Friday that were not included in Saturday’s bulletin. This brings the total number of tests performed since early February to 23,167. 

Public health officials have expanded testing criteria. It is important for people who meet the criteria and are showing even mild symptoms of COVID-19, including a cough, a runny nose, a sore throat and a fever, to be tested to determine better the spread of the virus in Manitoba. 

Manitobans are reminded that if they are showing symptoms of COVID-19 and meet testing criteria, they can call Health Links–Info Santé at 204-788-8200 or (toll-free) at 1-888-315-9257 for more information. 

For up-to-date information on testing criteria and community screening sites, visit www.gov.mb.ca/covid19/locations.html. For more information and to access the online screening tool for COVID-19, visit www.manitoba.ca/covid19.

Public health is also advising people to remain within or close to their home communities. This includes limiting travel, even within Manitoba, to essential trips only. Visits to cottages are not recommended at this time. Services at smaller health centres could be strained if seasonal visitors become ill.
