The most recent annoncements by Quebec government confirmed today 628 people infected with COVID-19. Of these, 45 are hospitalized, including 20 in intensive care. A total of 4 deaths have been reported in the province.

This is an increase of 409 cases since the day before. Prime Minister François Legault has indicated that the sudden increase in cases is due to the fact that the Direction de la santé publique has changed the way it compiles data, now considering the probable cases that had been identified in recent days as confirmed cases.

François Legault added that Quebec is entering a new phase in its battle against the coronavirus : community transmission.

In Outaouais, there are 8 people who have been declared in the past days.

Mandatory containment for elderly in seniors’ residences
The Prime Minister also announced that, from now on, all exits from seniors’ residences are prohibited, except under supervision. This new directive, which applies to both the private and public sectors, is intended to reassure other residents of these residences and to prevent the virus from entering these establishments. Visits remain prohibited.

To reassure seniors, the Ministry of Health will set up a service to help those who have no relatives or no other means to do their grocery shopping and essential purchases. The government ensures that no senior will miss food.

François Legault wanted to add that, although the elderly are more at risk than others of serious consequences, the entire population, regardless of age, must comply with the requirements of public health. “We all have to follow the instructions. Everyone ", he hammered, recalling the importance of avoiding trips that are not absolutely necessary, whether from one neighborhood to another, from one city to another, from one region to another, and even from one province to another.

New measures have been announced by the various levels of government. These are available in the news section of chipfm.com.
