Northern Manitoba continued its recent trend of reporting only a handful of new daily COVID-19 cases July 20.
Four cases were reported in the Northern Regional Health Authority, the second-lowest of any health region next to the Prairie Mountain region, where there were three new cases. Overall Manitoba saw 36 new cases, including 13 in Winnipeg, 11 in the southern health region and five in the Interlake-Eastern health region.
Four previously reported cases were removed due to data corrections for a net daily increase of 32 cases. The five-day test positivity rate was 3.6 per cent on Tuesday.
The new northern cases included a pair in the Shamattawa/York Factory/Tataskweyak/Split Lake health district and one in The Pas/Opaskwayak/Kelsey health district, as well as one, already recovered, from an unknown district.
There are 108 Manitobans in hospital due to the virus, including three northern residents. 29 Manitobans, one of them from the north, are in intensive care as a result of their infections.
