Horacio Arruda, had warned the journalists at the beginning of the pandemic : things will change, sometimes from one day to the next, as science teaches us more and more every day on the COVID-19. But here are nine statements of the trio formed by François Legault, Horacio Arruda and Danielle McCann which have not been demonstrated.

1. NOT EASY TO GET RID OF THE FAX

The Newspaper said that 200 died in the COVID have been forgotten a long time because of the use of the fax and the postal service to account for the death, much to the chagrin of François Legault. “Within a week, it should all be computerized,” said the prime minister. A computer readable form has been developed, but it continues to use the fax to several locations. The disappearance of this dinosaur technology of the health network is scheduled for 2023.

2. FAR OF THE 14 000 TESTS PER DAY

Even if Quebec had set as goal to conduct 14 000 screening tests per day, public health has rarely reached this target. On the 1st of may last, Dr. Horacio Arruda stated that” we have a goal of 14 000 testing […] and to maintain this flow for the next few weeks “. However, the number of tests carried out on a daily basis has exceeded this threshold only three times since and has even often been less than 8000.

3. WHEN THE MACHINE Does NOT HEAR THE INSTRUCTIONS

The COVID-19 wreaks havoc when it enters a ltc facility, and employees who are moving from one institution to another are a Trojan horse. “It is fundamental that these are the same people who work with our seniors by unit and by facility “, said the minister of Health Danielle McCann at the beginning of April. Despite these guidelines, employees have continued to make shifts in more than one establishment, some of which cases of COVID-19 exploded.

4. FORCED To CALL The ARMY IN REINFORCEMENT

François Legault was thought to have managed to fill the shortage of staff in NURSING homes after having worked on the nominations of the site JeContribue and called the doctors in reinforcement. “We trust that, by tomorrow, with all those who have made us sign, we should be able to fill the 1,000 positions that remain to be addressed “, he said on 21 April. The next day, it was quite the opposite. He asked for the help of 1,000 soldiers of the canadian army.

5. The SCHOOL IN MONTREAL, YES… BUT NOT

A roller coaster of emotions has overwhelmed the small schoolchildren montreal this spring. “I announce to you today that if and only if the situation remains as at present, we are going to reopen the primary schools […] may 19 in the greater Montreal area,” said François Legault, the 27th of April. The back-to-school children of the metropolis was first pushed back to may 25, before the PM takes the plogue and announced that the schools of Montreal and its suburbs will remain closed until September.

6. THE THREAT CAME RATHER OF THE UNITED STATES

At the beginning of the crisis, the authorities feared that the disease comes from asian travelers. “We have an advantage compared to British Columbia and then Toronto, it is that there are less Chinese or the people who come here “, said Horacio Arruda on 11 march. Gold, finally, 25 % of travellers reported positive in Quebec had stayed in the United States, 18 % came from elsewhere in Canada, and 19 % had visited Europe, reported The Duty in may, while a meagre 0.07 per cent came from China.

7. WHO TALKED about herd IMMUNITY ?

In order to convince Quebecers to begin the déconfinement, François Legault has raised the concept of herd immunity. On April 23, the PM explained to the citizens cooped up at home for a month that they now had to develop antibodies against the COVID-19. “It is necessary that there is an immunity that develops in the next few months,” he said. Two days later, the WHO and the public health agency of Canada challenged this approach. Since then, this concept has disappeared from public discourse of the trio of 13-h.

8. THE END OF The OMERTA FOR LATER

Before the stories of horror that are multiplied in the CHSLD, the minister of Health Danielle McCann has announced the end of “the omerta” in the network. It has put in place a mail box where the workers could denounce irregular situations. However, nurses have indicated to the Journal that when she complained, the MSSS responded that he could not intervene in the work environments.

9. A ROUTINE TEST IN A CHSLD. REALLY ?

“We started, then we will continue, in the next few days, to systematically test everyone in NURSING homes to find out if they have the virus,” said François Legault, on the 8th of April last. But two months later, samples had been carried out on 70 % of the workforce, which represents 44 000 workers, found our Office of investigations. It was still nearly a third of employees who pass tests, not to speak of the beneficiaries, and this despite several directives sent to the health network.
