Manitoba Shifts COVID Focus

Manitoba Shifts COVID Focus

WINNIPEG - Manitoba premier Heather Stefanson says her government is shifting its focus slightly when it comes to COVID-19.

Instead of trying to contain the virus, the province will put more emphasis on getting people vaccinated.

The COVID vaccines reduce the risk of severe outcomes including hospitalizations which reached a record 454 on Wednesday.

Dr. Jazz Atwal refused to say whether he and other public health officials have advised the Stefanson government to bring in tougher restrictions.
