The different provinces in the country were accumulating, mid-day Monday, only three new deaths related to the COVID-19, all in Quebec, for a total of 8687 citizens who have died after having contracted the disease.
In the event that no death is reported in the Western provinces, who have to update their balance sheet as of the end of the week, the day of Monday would be the least deadly in almost three and a half months. In effect, it is necessary to go back to the 24th of march last, to find a day totaling three deaths or less.
In parallel, the provinces have recorded 229 cases additional COVID-19, mostly in Quebec (+74) and in Ontario (+152).
A hair cut for Ford
If there is an improvement in the Belle Province, after a mark above the symbolic threshold of 100 cases at the end of the week, it is the day of the groundhog in Ontario, where the average number of new infections has held steady at around 150 in the last week.
After being spread like wildfire among the agricultural workers, aliens in the fields of the south-west of the province, the disease has made a comeback in the city, while the majority of the cases detected are to be found in Toronto or in the surrounding cities. This area will require the wearing a mask in public as early as Tuesday.
Most populous province of the country may, however, be encouraged while it has registered no deaths in the last 24 hours. This is a first in Ontario since march 31.
With this in mind, the government of Doug Ford has authorized the déconfinement of the region of Leamington and Kingsville, the last where the restaurants and shops of personal care remained closed.
“I’ll come visit you. I desperately need a hair cut, so I’m going to come. We are going to find a barber in Leamington or Kingsville”, has launched Mr. Ford in the press, who had promised to wait until the déconfinement full of his province before reconnecting with his hair pre-COVID.
An American infected in the “bubble”
On the side of the “bubble of the Atlantic”, which was inaugurated last Friday, there is a single new case, that of an American who was passing through Nova Scotia to get to the Île-du-Prince-Édouard, where he is denied access.
The island province, however, has not announced a new case on Monday, after the discovery of five patients over the course of the weekend, which had put an end to more than two months without a case of COVID-19. Four of these cases have actually been linked to a man who has been in contact with the traveller in us while he was in Nova Scotia, has indicated the chief medical health officer for the province, Dr. Heather Morrison.
