WINNIPEG - The chief nursing officer for the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority says city hospitals may have to cancel elective surgeries if more flu cases turn up in Manitoba this weekend.
Jan Currie says the authority is closely watching to see if more people get sick and need to be hospitalized.
There are currently 119 cases of confirmed swine flu in the province.
About two dozen people with severe flu-like symptoms are being treated in intensive care.
About two-thirds of those are aboriginal.
