Health officials say 11 more Manitobans have died from COVID-19, as 400 new cases were identified Wednesday and health-care capacity continues to swell.

Provincial data shows 249 people are hospitalized and 40 people were in intensive care with the virus as of Wednesday morning.

The latest deaths bring Manitoba’s total number of victims to 190 and the new cases bring the province’s total reported since March to 12,007.

“I think our message needs to remain clear, our numbers are going in the wrong direction, we cannot sustain these numbers in our health-care system,” said Manitoba’s chief public health officer, Dr. Brent Roussin, at a press conference.

“We need to bring these numbers down and our message on how to do that is clear, the answer is clear, and that’s to stay home.”

The press conference comes as the province continues to deal with ballooning daily case counts that threaten to overwhelm the health-care system.

In the last eight days alone, Manitoba has reported more than 3,100 new cases and 76 deaths.

Wednesday’s list of deaths include:

a woman in her 50s from the Southern Health–Santé Sud health region;
a man in his 60s from the Winnipeg health region;
