Manitoba’s COVID-19 death toll increased by 12 people in the second-last week of October.

According to the province’s latest weekly COVID-19 report, deaths related to the virus increased from 2,199 to 2,211 between Oct. 16 and 22, including eight people who died during the reporting period.

As COVID-19 cases are no longer reported directly to public health, officials say delays in reporting deaths are to be expected.

The province also reported a slight decrease in confirmed COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations and test-positivity rates.

The test-positivity rate decreased from 29.6 per cent to 24 per cent and 362 people were confirmed to be positive with COVID-19, compared to 402 in the previous week.

One hundred people were admitted to hospital with the disease, including 16 to intensive care. In the week prior, 103 people were admitted to hospital.

Wastewater samples collected in Winnipeg until Oct. 20 indicated increased COVID-19 spread, according to the province.
