WINNIPEG – Manitoba’s key COVID-19 numbers dropped to their lowest levels in weeks Monday, more than one month after restrictions were tightened on public gatherings and business openings.
The province reported 167 new cases and four deaths.
Both numbers haven’t been that low since before the government imposed a provincewide Code Red on Nov. 12:1618619520000,, which limited public gatherings and required many stores to close. The restrictions were further tightened Nov. 20, when a ban on most social visits inside private homes took effect.
“Our case numbers are down today, which is definitely a positiveAlta.,” said Dr. Jazz Atwal, the acting deputy chief provincial public health officer.
