Manitoba has had incredible success managing the provincial response to the coronavirus outbreak.
The most recent data shows a four day streak of no new cases. The number of active cases in the province is now down to 16. No people are in hospital.
In total, seven coronavirus patients have died in Manitoba; 269 have recovered.
Manitoba has also had a very divergent approach to social distance regulation enforcement than Ontario, opting for education over fines and tickets.
How did Manitoba create large scale public buy-in to the so-called new normal while protecting civil liberties and lives?
