Manitoba flu cases relatively low

  • Print

Manitoba still has a "lowish" number of flu cases and the wave of illness is nearly half done.

There are 45 lab-confirmed cases in the province so far, most in the H1N1 strain, Manitoba Health reported late Thursday.

No deaths have yet been connected to the flu, but the province is investigating a death two weeks ago that may be related to influenza. In that case, said Chief Public Health Officer Michael Routledge, the patient exhibited several symptoms not associated with the flu. Doctors are still working to determine the person's exact cause of death.

Unlike Alberta and other provinces, Manitoba has a relatively low number of flu cases, in part because it continued to vaccinate for H1N1 following the 2009 pandemic year.
