COVID Cases Double

WINNIPEG - Manitoba's top doctor says COVID-19 cases doubled from March to April.

Dr. Brent Roussin calls these and other numbers concerning.

Like hospitalizations which hit 178 on Monday.

Roussin says the province is starting to see a strain on the health care system, as younger people are being admitted to intensive care.

The provincial test positivity rate has reached eight percent and in Winnipeg it's almost nine percent.

When asked about the possibility of even tougher restrictions, Roussin wouldn't rule it out.
