$50M For Backed Up Surgeries

$50M For Backed Up Surgeries

WINNIPEG - Manitoba is spending $50 million to try and clear the backlog of surgeries caused by COVID-19.

But the Canadian Medical Association says it's not enough. A study by the organization says $68 million is needed.

Surgeries were already backed up late last year even before the second wave of the pandemic overwhelmed hospitals late last year.

More details on the funding are expected next week when finance minister Scott Fielding tables his budget.
