COVID-19 Immunization records are now available online for Manitobans who have received their shots, the Manitoba government announced on Thursday. That figure, using an expanded definition from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, captures suspected cases where there is no confirmed test.

In the last seven days, there have been 2,072 positive cases.

Dr. Réka Gustafson spoke at Friday's news conference in Vancouver as Dr. Bonnie Henry took a rare day off, and told reporters 69,970 people have "fully recovered" from the novel coronavirus.

This brings the total cases to 949,695 and total deaths to 16,693.

There have been three recoveries so the number of active cases remains at 11.

Johnson County reported 748 new cases, for a total of 13,634 since March.


All 2,461 new cases reported today are transmitted locally.

The number of patients in intensive care increased from 59 to 60, and the number of patients on ventilators increased from 24 to 26.

"We are seeing a decline in outbreaks as well as we are seeing there is substantial protection for the frail and elderly from vaccinations".

A record 12,250 vaccines were administered yesterday, February 18, bringing the provincial total to 192,942 in total, 36,923 of which were second doses.

"On behalf of the premier and I think everyone in B.C., I want to pass on my condolences to the family, friends and caregivers of the six people who have passed away", said Dix.

Within those facilities, 679 individuals have tested positive for the virus.
