By mid-day, Canada were 688 new cases of COVID-19, for a total of 92 393 to date, and 69 deaths linked to the disease. There are now 7345 Canadians who have died after contracting coronavirus.
Unusually, Ontario has moved ahead for a second day on the Quebec in terms of the number of new cases with 446 patients, in part related to a large outbreak among foreign workers employed in the fields of the south-west of the province.
In addition, 17 deaths have been recorded in the province’s most populous country.
This is the first time in several weeks that the Province did not announce the largest number of cases in the country for two days or more.
On the contrary, Quebec has reported 239 new infections, the lowest number reported in the 24 hours since the 22 march, the date where the authorities had identified 38 positive tests. At the time, Quebec had a total of only 219 patients with the disease.
The mortality has, however, experienced a significant rebound in Quebec with the announcement of 52 deaths in 24 hours, or 2.6 times more than the 20 deaths announced the day before.
A doctor stirs things up
On the side of the Atlantic, a single case was reported in New Brunswick. The province, which appeared to be managed to control the pandemic, are witnessing a certain resumption of the spread of the virus from a week in the region of Campbellton.
This new outbreak has been linked to a doctor who would have infected some of these patients after a visit in Quebec, which has sparked anger on social networks. Several users have even gone so far as to claim its return.
