WINNIPEG - The province is reporting two new deaths today from COVID-19, one of them in Winnipeg.
There are 34 new cases of the virus, including 19 in Winnipeg.
586 cases are active, 56,181 people have recovered, for a total of 57,951 cases so far.
75 people are in hospital, including 11 in intensive care.
The five day test positivity rate in the province is 2.6 per cent. Winnipeg's rate is 1.8. 1,590 tests were done in the last 24 hours for a total of 891,397 since the pandemic began.
The death toll now sits at 1,184.
As cruel as it is going to sound I have to say it. We do not need to know how many past cases, how many past deaths, how many past hospitalizations. What we should have for information is current active cases, current hospitalizations with current ICU patients and finally what is the current (within the last two to three month) death toll and why they died. All the rest is just fear inciting for no reason but to illicit control over some people.
