UK records 9,284 new COVID-19 cases, amid rising trend

The race is on to vaccinate as many people as possible before pandemic measures can be relaxed

Britain on Sunday recorded 9,284 new cases of coronavirus and six deaths within 28 days of a positive Covid-19 test.

The death was a woman in her 80s from Winnipeg and was part of the outbreak at Seven Oaks General Hospital 3U4-7.

Of the active cases, 108 (5 in Northern Health) individuals are now hospitalized, 48 (6 in Northern Health) of whom are in intensive care. There may be a discrepancy from the daily case counts reported by the BCCDC and Island Health.

Those entering Canada will need to show documents proving they received two doses of the vaccines approved in Canada at least 14 days prior to entry.

Since last Friday, the test positivity rate has fallen 2.6% provincially and 3.8% in Winnipeg.

The province saw 229 new cases over the weekend, meaning there are now 1,204 active cases (58 of those active cases are in Northern Health).

Manitoba now has 2,075 active cases and 52,205 people have recovered.

"We still expect hospitalization and ICU numbers to remain high over the coming weeks", said Roussin.

There are now 44 active cases of COVID-19 in the island region, including four people in hospital and one more in critical care, according to the BC Centre for Disease Control.

While more than 1 million New Mexicans age 16 and older have now completed their COVID-19 shots, Health Secretary Tracie Collins said last week there were still about 85,000 state residents who were eligible for their second shot after getting an initial dose.

Roussin also addressed where COVID-19 is now transmitting in Manitoba, noting workplaces in the province are the cause for many cases.

There are several counties that are experiencing a rise in cases, said Lisa Cox, spokeswoman for the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services.

"When you start to talk about proportion related to transmission, that proportion will no doubt go up whenever you have significant restrictions in place".

Roussin added there isn't any one specific workplace that is seeing a large amount of transmission but said the virus spreads when there is prolonged indoor contact.
