NOVEL CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) BULLETIN #9

Province of Manitoba Media Bulletin


March 12, 2020


The Manitoba government and public health officials are advising that two additional presumptive positive cases of COVID-19 have been identified in Manitoba. Case two – a man in his 30s who lives in the area of the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority – has tested positive for COVID-19.  At this time, it appears the individual was exposed to the virus through recent travel.  Public health investigations are ongoing. Case three – a man in his 30s who lives in the area of the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority – has tested positive for COVID-19.  At this time, it appears the individual was also exposed to the virus through recent travel.  Public health investigations are ongoing. Public health investigations are continuing for case one, which was announced earlier today by the chief provincial public health officer of Manitoba.  Preliminary information indicates individuals who were on the flights listed below on March 7 and March 8 may have been exposed to COVID-19: •    Philippines Airlines flight PR 466 from Manila to Incheon, Korea – rows 48 to 54; •    Air Canada flight AC 0064 from Incheon, Korea to Vancouver International Airport – rows 30 to 36; •    Air Canada flight AC 8622 from Vancouver International Airport to Winnipeg – rows 24 to 29. People who may have been on these flights in the rows indicated above are asked to self-isolate and monitor themselves for symptoms for 14 days since their last known contact or exposure.  For more information on self-isolation and self-monitoring, visit: www.gov.mb.ca/health/publichealth/factsheets/coronavirus_selfisolation.pdf.

If an individual develops a fever higher than 38 C (100.4 F), cough, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, or any other symptoms at any time during the 14-day period, call Health Links–Info Santé at 204-788-8200 or 1-888-315-9257 (toll-free), or call 911 if it is an emergency.  Be sure to advise health officials about your travel and/ or exposure history. As the COVID-19 pandemic evolves, all Manitobans have a role to play in slowing its spread and minimizing its impact on the health-care system and in communities. The provincial government has developed social distancing measures to slow the spread of COVID-19 in Manitoba.  Information is being shared with key stakeholders about measures at government facilities including the Manitoba Legislative Building, the legislative building grounds and Memorial Park.
