COVID-19: slow death in the country, NURSING homes in ontario in the line of fire

COVID-19: ralentissement des décès au pays, les CHSLD ontariens en ligne de mire

The growth of the balance sheet of cases and deaths related to the COVID-19 in Canada has slowed on Tuesday, with the exception of Quebec, while all eyes are turned to the CHSLD of Ontario following the publication of an explosive report from the canadian army.

At the end of the day, the country had a total of 86 648 patients who have been infected since the beginning of the pandemic, an increase of 937 cases. The number, 6639 Canadians have now died after contracting coronavirus, or 94 more than the day before.

In Québec alone has reported 65.5 per cent of the cases of the day, which is 614 positive tests. La Belle Province is even more overrepresented in terms of mortality, with 70 of the 94 death of the day (74,5 %).

Quebecers have also learned that, like Ontario, their government will soon receive a report of the canadian armed Forces on the conditions of life that prevailed in the ltc facility where the military are brought in for reinforcement.

In the neighbouring province, the unveiling of the report on the state of the deficiencies widespread in the care provided to beneficiaries – and even death, possibly due to the technique robust employee by an attendant to feed a beneficiary has had the effect of a bomb. The premier, Doug Ford and canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau have both admitted to being outraged and angered by the conclusions of the military.

This report incendiary has overshadowed the good news of the day in the province in which 287 cases were reported on Tuesday, in sharp decline compared to the more than 400 cases announced almost daily in the course of the last week. It is the smallest number of cases announced since the 31 march last, the day on which 260 patients had been detected.
