Winnipeg has experienced a string of cases in the downtown core, including a recent one that was reported Saturday.
Winnipeg’s Health Ministry said it was working to get people tested for the virus.
A person who tested positive Saturday has since tested negative, and a new case has been confirmed.
In total, nine people have tested positive for the disease.
The number of confirmed cases in Winnipeg has now increased to 31.
One person has died, while six have been released from hospital.
A doctor said they are expecting more patients to test positive as a result of the flu.
Dr. Michael Ouellette said it’s likely the virus will continue to spread throughout the city.
“I’m sure the virus is going to keep spreading,” he said.
The people who are most vulnerable are the people who do have it.” “
People have to be very careful with their exposures.
The people who are most vulnerable are the people who do have it.”
Winnipeg’s chief medical officer Dr. Mike Strickland said the city is seeing an increase in cases, with a new cluster of cases coming to light.
Strickling said the virus may be spreading across the city from infected travellers to those who have already been exposed.
He said the health ministry is taking the lead in getting people tested.
“If we see that there’s a significant increase in new cases, then we’ll be monitoring the numbers and make a decision as to whether or not to provide health care for those people,” Strickning said.
He also said the province has not confirmed the outbreak is related to the flu pandemic.
Health officials say the virus has been isolated in two patients in Winnipeg and two in other parts of the province.
It’s unclear how many people have been infected in Winnipeg.
The city has experienced one of its worst pandemic events in recent memory.
More than 2,000 cases of the virus have been reported in the city, including two cases that were confirmed Saturday.
It was not clear how many other people have come down with the flu and how many died from it.
A total of 11 people have died from the virus, including one death on Sunday, according to health officials.
They say more than 10,000 people in Manitoba are infected with the virus each year.
Winnipeg is in the midst of an unprecedented pandemic, with more than 20,000 confirmed cases and 3,000 deaths.
Manitoba’s Health Minister said it is expected to see more cases in other regions.
“In terms of the overall health of the population in Manitoba, the most critical part of our response is that we continue to provide the public with the health services they need, as they are,” Strackland said.
Winnipeg Mayor Sam Katz said Winnipegers should stay alert and wear protective gear.
“It is a good time to be out and about and to take a moment to take precautions to ensure you’re well protected,” Katz said.
The Winnipeg Public Health Centre says the virus in Winnipeg is not spread through contact with blood or feces.
The health centre advises anyone who has had contact with someone with the same virus, to call their health care provider.
People with flu symptoms can contact a public health hotline by calling 204-986-6800 or visiting their local health centre.
