Newly-released data shows that Downtown, Seven Oaks, and Fort Gary neighbourhoods are being hit the hardest with cases during the pandemic.
After stating that the province would not be separating Winnipeg into districts similar to the rest of the province, today Manitoba is releasing that data to the public. Earlier in August, Chief Public Health Officer Dr. Brent Roussin stated that due to travelling habits it would not be helpful to separate the city but has since changed his mind.
After releasing the information for the first time, some neighbourhoods are standing out.
Since March, Winnipeg has had less than half of Manitoba's 1,393 cases. At 527 total COVID cases, three neighbourhoods are the location of 220 of Winnipeg's cases.
At almost a quarter of Winnipeg's total cases, Seven Oaks had 92 cases in total, with 63 recoveries and no deaths. At 68 total cases, Fort Garry has since had 53 recoveries and no deaths. The Downtown area has more active cases than recoveries, with 33 active and 27 recovered.
Each district in Winnipeg has had at least one case of COVID-19.
Also notable is the "Community Area," an additional, 13th district recorded, but identifiable as other districts. This area has two active cases and three recovered. CHVN has reached to the province for clarification.
The areas of Winnipeg with the least amount of cases are St. Boniface with 14 cases, St. James Assiniboia at 27, and Transcona with 29.
Manitoba has been releasing age demographics since separating health district reporting, finding men and women aged 20-39 are the age group within the city with the largest amount of cases.
