3 more deaths, Manitoba sets record with 184 new cases on Tuesday

Three more people have died and Manitoba has 184 new cases of COVID-19, setting a new record for the most cases in a single day, according to public health officials. 

Two of the people who died, a man in his 80s and a woman in her 80s, are connected to the outbreak at St. Boniface Hospital, while the third, a woman in her 60s, is connected to the Parkview Place care home outbreak.

There are now 83 people in hospital — three more than there were on Monday — and 15 people are in intensive care.

The latest numbers come one day after Chief Provinicial Public Health Officer Dr. Brent Roussin and Chief Nursing Officer Lanette Siragusa warned that rapidly rising COVID-19 cases are putting strain on the province’s health system.
