Public health officials in Manitoba confirmed one new case presumptive of COVID-19 Saturday, bringing the number of confirmed or presumptive cases of the disease in the province to 18.
The announcement comes after two straight days where no new cases were found in Manitoba.
The latest victim is a Winnipeg woman in her 50s who had recently traveled, health officials say.
The province believes she fell ill after travelling abroad. They did not specify where she traveled, or what flights she had been on.
A new community screening drive-thru site has opened in south Winnipeg.
