COVID-19 Cases Are Rising Again

Manitoba is facing an increase in COVID-19 cases in the province. The government is uneasy because the cases have been rising abnormally. This week’s report released by the government showed that the province has more than four hundred new COVID-19 cases and six deaths.

This increase is concerning because the province has been maintaining a low amount of news cases since the mid of October, and this sudden increase is unexplained. Manitoba has already had 151,000 cases of COVID-19 and 2,199 deaths, and it is not stopping. “An increase from 341 in the previous week. The volume of lab tests was, on average, 304 people tested for COVID-19 per day, a slight increase from 284 in the previous week, and the positivity rate of lab tests was 29.6%, an increase from 24.1% in the previous week,” says Manitoba Health in their COVID-19 report.

The outbreaks regarding this increase in COVID-19 cases happened in nine long-term care facilities. The number of hospital admissions has also increased, which means that some citizens with severe symptoms require immediate hospitalization. Moreover, patients will low immunity are the ones getting the COVID-19 virus.

All Manitobans should take the necessary precautions because many doctors and healthcare workers say the pandemic isn’t over. Everyone agrees that it is not as severe as it started, but it is still around and taking the lives of many of our citizens.
