82% In Manitoba Got Omicron

WINNIPEG - An infectious disease expert says 82 per cent of Manitobans caught the Omicron variant of COVID-19.

Tara Moriarty, an associate professor at the University of Toronto, bases that figure on data which indicates Omicron spread faster in Manitoba than any other province.

She believes many infections were not included in the provincial government's official count of COVID cases.

The province says it can not comment on Moriarty's analysis without seeing the methodology she used to generate the data.
