There are 133 new cases of COVID-19 in Manitoba and three more people have died, Chief Provincial Public Health Officer Dr. Brent Roussin says.
That brings the total number of deaths related to the novel coronavirus to 741 in Manitoba.
Of the deaths, two are linked to known outbreaks in health-care facilities — a man in his 80s linked to the McCreary/Alonsa Health Centre outbreak and a woman in her 80s from Bethania Mennonite Personal Care Home in Winnipeg.
A man in his 60s from the Northern Health Region also died.
Of the new cases, 47 are in the Winnipeg health region, 34 are in the Northern Health Region, 28 are in the Prairie Mountain Health region, 13 are in the Southern Health region and 11 are in the Interlake-Eastern health region.
The five-day test positivity rate — a rolling average of the percentage of tests that come back positive — dropped again on Monday to 10 per cent provincially and 8.8 per cent in Winnipeg.
The number of people in hospital with the virus also dropped. As of Monday morning, there are 316 people in hospital, 162 of them infectious. The other 154 people are no longer contagious, but still require hospital care, said Lanette Siragusa, Shared Health chief nursing officer.
There are 37 people in intensive care because of COVID-19; 21 of them have active cases.
