Saturday saw another increase in COVID-19 in the prairie provinces, including one of the biggest one day case spikes in Manitoba for months.
The Manitoba government provided information on four new cases of COVID-19 through a tweet released Saturday afternoon.
"Public health officials advise 4 new cases of [COVID-19] have been identified as of 9:30 a.m. today. The total number of lab-confirmed positive and probable positive cases in Manitoba is 322," read the tweet.
The Manitoba government did not provide any additional information about new cases outside the tweet except that updated information on new cases would be provided June 29.
The location of the new cases, any places of interest in relation to the cases or information on transmission was not released Saturday. The Manitoba COVID-19 dashboard was not updated with any new information Saturday.
Four new cases in Manitoba would make Saturday one of the biggest one-day increases in Manitoba in months. The last two days where more than three cases of COVID-19 were reported in Manitoba were April 30 and June 19, where four new cases were reported each day.
Saskatchewan did provide more information than a single tweet June 27, announcing six new cases, all in the far north region of the province. One hundred and three cases of COVID-19 remain active in Saskatchewan. The communities of origin for the six new cases are unknown.
Currently, 60 of Saskatchewan's 103 active cases are either in the north or far north regions. Northern Saskatchewan has reported 436 total COVID-19 cases during the pandemic, compared to just three in total in northern Manitoba.
