Naomi and I were fortunate to attend a special event on Saturday evening. Held at the Manitoba Museum, the Women's Health Clinic fundraiser featured excellent foods prepared by some of Winnipeg's best chefs. It was a great evening. Congratulations to all who helped make it a success. And thanks to those who work at the Women's Health Clinic for all the good work they do in helping others.
Manitoba implemented physical distancing measures in mid-March. South Dakota has still not made physical distancing mandatory. The result is a dramatic difference in the incidence of covid-19 viral infections between the two jurisdictions. This graph shows the number of people with Covid-19 infections from March 27 to April 14. Manitoba ( red line ) started leveling off about April 4 and has seen only a small increase in Covid-19 infections since then. South Dakota ( blue line ) has seen a dramatic increase in Covid-19 infections since April 4. Those who are skeptical of the impact of physical distancing in Manitoba should look at this graph! Data are from the Johns Hopkins daily tabulations
