Ontario has experienced a meteoric rise in the fight against the COVID-19, Wednesday, with its best record in more than four months, and in pursuing the recovery of its economy, while Quebec has continued to stagnate.
To 14h, there were 255 new cases of SARS-CoV-2, for a total of 115 247 infections detected to date. By contrast, only two deaths had been reported, for a total of 8911 patients who have lost the life being carriers of the virus.
Quebec was, by far, the most important contributor to the balance sheet of canada, with 176 cases of addition, a slight increase compared to the previous day. No deaths, however, has been reported.
After the end of June and beginning of July was encouraging, the Province shows itself totally unable to”flatten the curve” again, and sees its balance sheets to stagnate, particularly in the last two weeks.
On Wednesday, the partys and private events continued to be singled out by authorities as the main vectors of an outbreak in Quebec, particularly in the regions of Quebec and Chaudière-Appalaches regions, where a score of cases have been linked to three gatherings.
Investigation and déconfinement
The portrait of the situation was much less rosy in Ontario, where the authorities have state-of-76 infections and a single death. It is the smallest number of cases of COVID-19 recorded in 24 hours in the province since last march 22, the date on which we had recorded 48 cases. This is the first time since march that the Ontario pass under the symbolic mark of 100 cases per day.
This encouraging assessment is arrived at an opportune time for the government to Doug Ford, who announced, as expected, the regions of Peel and Toronto will be able to join the rest of the province to phase 3 of the plan déconfinement, which began two weeks ago. This phase allows in particular the reopening of the dining rooms of restaurants, bookstores, cinemas and training centres.
Only the Windsor-Essex region, still struggling with outbreaks among farm workers foreigners, must still take his evil in patience, as she had already had to do this during phase 2 of the recovery in ontario.
In parallel, Ontario has launched Wednesday a commission of inquiry into deaths related to the COVID-19 occurred in the centers of long-term care of the province. Recall that a damning report of the canadian armed Forces had judged severely the quality of the care provided in the centres most affected by the pandemic.
The three commissioners will consider the way in which the virus has spread in NURSING homes and will be able to compel people to testify. They will make recommendations to prevent such a tragedy from happening again. Their report is expected at the latest by April 2021.
“We will do everything necessary so that each elder in Ontario has a safe and comfortable place in which to live,” said the prime minister, Doug Ford, by issuing a press release.
