COVID-19: le port du masque à l'honneur au Canada, 25 nouveaux décès

New rules requiring the wearing of mask in public have captured the attention of Quebec and Ontario, on Tuesday, while more than 200 cases and 25 deaths additional related to the COVID-19 have been identified from one ocean to the other.

At 14h, there were 227 new infections to the COVID-19 to country, for a total of 104 145 since the beginning of the pandemic, while 25 deaths were added to the 8591 beset to this day.

Quebec has the great majority of the new deaths, or 18. Seven have occurred in the past 24 hours, while 11 deaths occurred before the 22nd of June have been added to the balance sheet.

Ontario, for its part, reported seven deaths and 157 cases of COVID-19, a number in sharp decline compared to the previous day. The province is still at the heart of an outbreak among farm workers, aliens, infected by hundred on the farms of the south-west of the province.

The mask featured

Beyond the balance, it is above all the imposition of a mask that stole the spotlight in these two provinces.

On the Quebec side, the government Legault is poised to impose the port of the cover face in public transport from July 13, and this, from the age of 12 years. Will follow an adaptation period of two weeks at the end of which it will be outright banned from boarding a bus or subway without a mask.

In Ontario, the elected officials of Toronto vote Tuesday on a regulation that, if adopted, will make mandatory the wearing of masks in public places as of Tuesday, 7 July.

This vote occurs in the aftermath of the rejection by the government of Ford to a demand of the mayors of the greater Toronto area, who demanded that Ontario requires wearing a mask in public places to inhabitants of the Queen City and its suburbs.

This measure would enter into force only a few days after the obligation to wear a covering face in public transport, a directive that would be applied as from Thursday 2 July.

The elected representatives of the region of Peel, in the suburbs of Toronto, will vote on them Thursday to require the wearing of mask in public.
