On Friday, Manitoba’s deputy chief public health officer vowed assistance to anyone who needs it to isolate after the province reported 497 new COVID-19 cases. The increase in cases 200 more than the daily increase on Thursday brings the overall number of infections in the province to over 50,000 since the outbreak began. Manitoba now has a total of 50,144 cases.

If people are experiencing symptoms related to the coronavirus, Dr. Jazz Atwal advises them to get tested as soon as possible, preferably within 24 hours. “If it’s good, collaborate with public health to isolate yourself. If you’re struggling with self-isolation, public health can assist you ” he announced during a press conference on Friday afternoon.

“Whatever problems you may have, we have a lot of resources to deal with them.” “Do you need to eat something?” We’ll see what we can do to get you some food. “Do you require support in your house with your children or extended family? We’ll be of assistance to you. If it makes it easier for you to move out of that house, we’ll help.”

The most important lesson is to be tested rather than wait until you end up in the hospital, according to Atwal.

On Friday, no additional COVID-19 deaths were reported, which is a significant improvement after the province had eight deaths on Thursday, the highest daily figure during the pandemic’s third wave. With 324 new cases on Friday, the Winnipeg health region had the most. That’s more than the province’s whole caseload (297) on Thursday.

With 80, the Prairie Mountain Health region comes in second, followed by the Southern Health zone with 36. In the Interlake-Eastern health region, there are 32 more instances, and in the Northern Health Region, there are 25 more. Since the beginning of the pandemic, 1,042 Manitobans have died from COVID-19, including 60 deaths linked to coronavirus variations of concern.
