There are now 803 active cases in Manitoba, with 25 people in hospital.

Manitoba is reporting three more COVID-19-related deaths on Wednesday, making it the province’s largest single-day jump in fatalities connected with the illness.

Another 32 COVID-19 cases were also announced Wednesday. That brings the total number of active cases in Manitoba to 803 — also a pandemic record for the province.

The deaths include a woman in her 90s from Winnipeg, linked to the outbreak at the Parkview Place care home, a man in his 70s from Winnipeg and a man in his 60s from the Stonewall district, in the Interlake–Eastern health region, linked to a communal living community.

All three of those deaths involve previously announced COVID-19 cases, the province said in a Wednesday afternoon news release.

“I’ll say again, our condolences to any family who has lost a family member, or any friend who’s lost a friend through COVID,” Premier Brian Pallister said at a news conference earlier on Wednesday.

“It’s dramatically clear that all of us are in this together and we need to do everything we possibly can to protect one another through this time,” he said.

“We’re Manitobans, for heaven’s sakes — we stand up for one another. Please, please make sure that you do that.”
