ICU patient numbers hold steady

Apr 19, 2022

The number of COVID-19 patients in Manitoba hospitals rose 20 per cent over the past week, but intensive care patient numbers held steady, says data obtained by CBC News.

As of Tuesday, 538 patients with COVID-19 occupied a hospital bed in Manitoba, internal provincial data says. That’s a rise of 90 patients from the 448 in hospital on April 12.

Over the same one-week period, there was no rise in the number of COVID patients in provincial intensive care wards, the data says.

That number held steady at 26 — 25 adults and one pediatric case.

The province no longer discloses publicly the total number of COVID-19 patients in hospital at any given time. Instead, it releases a weekly epidemiological report that includes the number of new hospital and ICU admissions due to COVID.
