Cases are continuing to rise in Manitoba's capital city.

The provincial government is announcing a total of 211 new COVID-19 cases, most of which are from Winnipeg.

A woman in her 90s with the virus linked to an outbreak at Russell Health Centre in the Prairie Mountain Health region has died, bringing the total number of deaths in Manitoba to 960, amounting to over 2.6 per cent of all recorded cases in the province.

There are 33,727 recoveries and 1,783 active cases in the province. Eight previous cases have been removed from the total due to a data correction.

The province says 132 people are in the hospital affected by the virus. There are 66 people who are active COVID-19 cases, with 18 of those in intensive care. Sixty-six people who are no longer infectious continue to require care, including 15 in critical care.

Winnipeg's five-day COVID-19 test positivity rate is 6.6 per cent, and provincially it is six per cent. There were 2,194 laboratory tests completed Monday, bringing the total number of tests to 627,113.
