Worn primarily by Quebec, the balance sheet of canada has passed the cap of 6500 families grieving who have lost a loved one passed away after having contracted the COVID-19.
By mid-day Monday, Canada had 114 more deaths than the previous day, while 978 positive tests were counted, almost all in Quebec and Ontario. The balance sheets of the three provinces to the west of the country, however, were always expected.
As usual, the Province has inherited the greater share of this burden with the announcement of 573 new cases of COVID-19 and 85 deaths. However, half of the deaths announced Monday, are more than a week, said prime minister François Legault.
Quebec is also able to put the foot on the accelerator in terms of screening of the disease with more than 15 000 tests carried out on a daily basis on Thursday and Friday last. The screening and monitoring of the pandemic remain of the important keys in order to identify the foci of infection.
Although it remains by far the province most affected by the COVID-19, Quebec has announced a new milestone in its déconfinement with the re-opening of shopping centres outside of the Greater Montreal as early as June 1st.
Yet more than 400 cases in Ontario
For its part, Ontario has, once again, listed more than 400 infected people on its territory, with 404 cases. During the last seven days, the review newspaper of the province is passed only once under the bar of 400 cases. Twenty-nine deaths have also been reported.
Yet, there was every reason to believe that the province was on track to master the famous curve of the infections, she was receding gradually from its balance sheet since mid-April.
This decline in the control of the pandemic in Ontario comes as the province has witnessed large rallies over the last weekend, including Toronto, which has resulted in a recall to the order of the authorities, and a call to the screening of people who are gathered in a group.
The province’s most populous country has also announced that it took control of two centres of long-term care “have not been able to control the spread of the COVID-19” between their walls.
