Manitoba continuing to meet demand for coronavirus testing: Shared Health

Manitoba is continuing to meet the demand for novel coronavirus testing as concerns around the crisis grow, according to the province’s Shared Health organization.

Chief nursing officer Lanette Siragusa told 680 CJOB that despite the increased workload, Manitoba’s lab workers are keeping up and resources are being increased to help maintain that pace.

“It’s a really fast pace for the lab, but we are keeping up and we’re looking at options to free up more capacity for them,” said Siragusa.

“We do know from other jurisdictions that it’s a problem everywhere and we’re going to continue to monitor it and work to improve it.”
