93 new COVID-19 cases, 6 deaths reported in Manitoba on Sunday

There are 93 new COVID-19 cases in Manitoba on Sunday and six more people have died after getting the illness, the province’s online dashboard says.

That’s the lowest single-day case count Manitoba has seen since April 14, when 86 were reported.

The biggest proportion of the new cases are in the Winnipeg health region, which reported 42 infections. 

The rest are split between the Southern Health region, which has 24 new cases, the Interlake-Eastern health region, with 14, the Northern health region, with eight, and the Prairie Mountain Health region, with five, the dashboard says.

Manitoba’s five-day test positivity rate dropped to eight per cent on Sunday, the dashboard says, down from 8.3 on Saturday.

Manitoba’s daily COVID-19 update was delayed earlier Sunday because of technical issues, the province said.
