COVID-19: The Quebec catches up its delay on the Ontario

COVID-19: Le Québec rattrape son retard sur l'Ontario

The peak of mid-July, during which the number of infections to the COVID-19 was on the rise again in Quebec, is alive and well in the past, to the point where the Belle Province comes close to the Ontario data.

Sunday, barely 201 contamination in SARS-CoV-2 were announced in Canada, thanks in large part to the improvement of the balance sheets of the Québec and Ontario, for a total of 122 087 cases diagnosed officially to this day. Two deaths, one in Saskatchewan and one in Quebec, have also been reported, bringing the total to 9026.

It is noted, however, that the British Columbia and Alberta have, as usual, not provided balance sheet Sunday. These provinces put their figures up to date only, Monday to Friday.

Quebec is particularly well pulled, Sunday, identifying 67 infections in 24 hours, its smallest number since last July 7.

Indeed, la Belle Province can boast of having been able to greatly improve its balance sheet over the last week. From 10 to 16 August inclusive, the Quebec reported 680 cases of COVID-19, or 97,1 per day on average.

During the previous week, from 3 to 9 August, Quebec had maintained an average of 124,6 infections per day, and this number was even higher at the end of July, while outbreaks linked to private parties and social events had generated dozens of infections.

Ontario, for its part, has unveiled 81 case Sunday. The province has stagnated in its fight against the pandemic, with an average 85.7 cases per day from 10 to 16 August, a number nearly identical to 85,3 identified daily in the previous week.

Let’s just remember that Ontario has almost two times more inhabitants than Quebec.

Manitoba is sinking

For its part, the province of Manitoba has, again, revealed some alarming statistics, Sunday, with 36 new infections on its territory. The majority of these infections are related to an outbreak that was already known.

The Prairie province seemed to escape, in part, to the pandemic. Manitoba had begun the month of July with 325 cases, a number which had remained unchanged up to July 13, inclusive. Since then, 372 infections have been counted, for a total of 697 to this day.

Elsewhere in the country, Saskatchewan has reported 15 patients on its territory, while New Brunswick has detected two young patients who had arrived from a trip overseas.
