Manitoba reports 147 new COVID-19 cases and four deaths on Friday.

The Southern and Winnipeg health regions have 75 per cent of the new cases, with 64 and 46, respectively, a news release from the province says.

There are 16 cases in the Prairie Mountain Health region, 12 in the Interlake-Eastern health region and nine in the Northern Health Region.

Three of the four new deaths were in the Winnipeg health region: a man in his 70s, a woman in her 80s and a woman in her 100s. The other death, a man in his 70s, was in the Prairie Mountain Health region.

The province also released more details about three deaths reported on its dashboard on Thursday. There are no COVID-19 news releases issued on Thursdays, so only the numbers were reported.

Two of the deaths reported Thursday were from Southern Health: a woman in her 70s linked to an outbreak at Salem Home long-term care home in Winkler, and a man in his 90s linked to an outbreak at Third Crossing Manor in Gladstone. The third death was a man in his 80s from the Prairie Mountain Health region.

There have now been 1,328 deaths from COVID-19 in Manitoba.
