COVID-19 BULLETIN #75

Province of Manitoba Media Bulletin


May 8, 2020


Public health officials advise one new case of COVID-19 has been identified as of 9:30 a.m. today. The total number of lab-confirmed positive and probable positive cases in Manitoba is 284. The data also shows: •    five individuals are currently hospitalized, with no individuals in intensive care; •    30 active cases and 247 individuals who have recovered from COVID-19; and •    the number of deaths due to COVID-19 remains at seven. As of yesterday, an additional 543 laboratory tests were performed. This brings the total number of tests performed since early February to 29,343. One additional person has tested positive from the workplace cluster in the Prairie Mountain Health region, bringing the total to eight cases. There is no cause for concern, and this is not unexpected as public health officials continue to investigate and trace contacts. Affected staff and their close contacts are self-isolating and public health officials are continuing with detailed contact tracing. The Manitoba government is lifting the one-month supply limit on prescription drugs. Effective May 11, Manitobans who have prescriptions for long-term medications will be able to fill them as per their prescriber’s directions up to a three-month supply, if the drug is not affected by shortages. Limits on prescription refills were imposed on March 19 in order to minimize potential distribution shortages and prevent people from stockpiling medication. Restoring Safe Services:  Manitoba’s Pandemic and Economic Roadmap for Recovery is available at www.gov.mb.ca/covid19/restoring/. Businesses with questions about how the new orders apply to them should visit https://engagemb.ca/. A comprehensive list of Manitoba government COVID-19 measures can be found at: https://manitoba.ca/bg/2020/04/covid19.html.
