Manitoba’s COVID-19 update delayed by technical issue

WINNIPEG — The province’s daily COVID-19 bulletin will not be released at its regular 12:30 time on Saturday.

Announced in a tweet, the province said the update would be delayed until later in the afternoon. The tweet cites technical issues for the delay.

On Friday, Manitoba health officials announced nine new COVID-19 deaths and 222 new cases.

Dr. Brent Roussin, the chief provincial public health officer, said holiday gatherings are a factor in the recent spike in cases.

As a result, the province extended code red restrictions for another two weeks.
