COVID-19: slight improvement of the balance sheets in Ontario and Quebec

COVID-19: légère amélioration des bilans au Québec et en Ontario

Quebec and Ontario have unveiled balance sheets as encouraging on Monday, but this has not prevented elected officials to continue to “preach” to young people who are defying the measures of social distancing, at the risk of causing new outbreaks.

By mid-day, there were 270 new cases of the COVID-19 to country, but a single death registered in Ontario. Canada now stack 114 of 191 cases of COVID-19 since the beginning of the pandemic, as well as 8891 death.

The balance sheets of the Western provinces, which have not been updated, in some cases during the end of the week, could, however, inflate the numbers, as is usually the case on Mondays.

Still “partys”

Once again, the young have found themselves in the crosshairs of the elect Monday, the under 40 years of age continue to be overrepresented in the tests COVID-19 of which are positive.

“It would be wrong to believe that young people are immunized against the COVID-19. You don’t want to find yourself in intensive care”, launched in the press conference the vice-premier of Québec, Geneviève Guilbault, while Quebec announced 145 new hiv infections in the COVID-19.

In Ontario, where 119 cases were reported on Monday, a private party which was attended by approximately 200 persons in a house of Brampton continued to hold the attention. “It is really unbelievable and disappointing,” said the prime minister, Doug Ford, suggesting that some young partiers lack judgment.

Rain of billion $ in Ontario

In addition, the COVID-19 continues to be a major cost to the public treasury. Most populous province of the country has allocated an envelope of $ 4 billion – financed in equal shares with Ottawa – in order to support its transit services and its cities.

Two billion dollars will go to transportation, while the rest will be used to fund food banks, shelters, and the public health systems of the cities.

“This funding will help ensure that the transport services will always be there for people to use when the province will reopen and people return to work,” explained the minister of Transport, Caroline Mulroney.
