A sign that the pandemic COVID-19 is still going strong, and even takes on the scale of the country, the provinces of Quebec and Ontario, respectively, have reported 158 and 166 new infection Saturday.

In the last few days, after a lull seen in the last few weeks of June, Canada has seen its number of cases to climb again, day after day, in the two main foci of contamination.

So far, 109 995 Canadians were infected with the virus, including 8848 who have unfortunately lost their fight against him.

In Quebec, 57 300 Quebec have, until now, been affected by the disease coronavirus, including 5654 people who died. The province has managed to test 15 258 people on 16 July, the final day where the data samples are available. To this day, more than a million Quebecers have been tested.

Its neighbour Ontario identifies 37 440 patients since the beginning of the health crisis. The number of dead amounts to 2748. Ontario, which has produced more than 1.8 million tests so far, had 24 551 samples in analysis Saturday and had led almost 29 000 on the eve.

“Anyone experiencing symptoms of the COVID-19, even mild, should stay at home and communicate with the authority of local public health for information on how to take the test, said on Saturday, Dr. Howard Njoo, deputy chief of the public health agency of Canada.

It was pointed out that people infected of the COVID-19 need of support and encouragement.

“Unfortunately, some people have been the victims of stigma and must deal with feelings of stress and even guilt, he said. In fact, we should thank them for having helped to reduce the spread after their diagnosis, either by insulating the home and in helping public health authorities to trace the contacts may have been exposed.”
