The Quebec déconfinement: what the curve looks like in your area?

Le Québec en déconfinement: à quoi ressemble la courbe dans votre région?

Jean-François Gibeault

In Quebec, the famous curve of contamination of the COVID-19 reached its peak at the beginning of may. But can we really speak of a single curve for the entire province ? Rather, we should speak of 18 curves, which are very different from one region to another. Our Desktop survey shows today. It is noted that the isolation imposed by the closure of the roads at the end of march seems to have slowed the virus much earlier than elsewhere in some corners of Quebec. In contrast, in two regions: Capitale-Nationale and Montérégie regions, the curve has to go back to the top.

Province of Quebec


50 232 case




25 043 case

The region is one of the most affected in the world. Among other things, 166 accommodation centres for the elderly (NURSING homes and RPA public) have at least one case. Since the beginning of may, the trend is to the downside.




6780 case

After Montreal, the Montérégie is the second region most affected. The city of Brossard alone, there are nearly 520 cases. Since the 23 may, we note a marked increase in balance sheet daily life. Is this the beginning of a new wave ?



5347 case

Residences for the elderly in Laval are among the hardest hit in Quebec. More than 11% of all deaths in Quebec occurred in NURSING homes and RPA of the laval area. After 165 and 152 cases on April 16 and 17, Laval has improved.


3922 case

The region has been severely affected. The city of Terrebonne has more than 1000 cases alone. Repentigny follows closely with more than 800 cases. Interestingly, the CISSS has found that only 17 % of people infected were aged 70 and older.


2827 case

The control points from the 1 April have had a temporary effect in this region. The peak arrived on may 15. Saint-Jérôme, Mirabel, Blainville, Sainte-Thérèse, Saint-Eustache and Boisbriand have all more than 200 cases since the beginning of the crisis.


1940 case

The two regions have been severely affected. The critical situation of some of the CHSLD partly explains the increase at the beginning of the month of April. In total, 254 residents and 201 employees that were achieved in 6 NURSING homes in the region.


1532 case

In proportion to its population, Quebec has been little affected by the virus. However, it is one of the few regions that has at this time an upward curve.


941 case

Let us recall that the eastern Townships was the most affected region in Quebec in the beginning of the crisis. The situation has taken almost a month to recover. Since then, the number of cases is stable.


532 case

The region is little affected. A first peak of 24 cases occurred on 5 April. The CHSLD Lionel-Émond, and the Residence La Gappe Phase 2 stack alone 56 and 25 cases, of which 67 are still active.


493 case

The area has been hit early by the COVID-19. We note especially outbreaks in residences for seniors, including the Manor house Liverpool of Lévis, where 30-residents and 14 employees have been infected.


321 case

Since 21 April, the region has never had more than eight new cases a day. On the 321 cases in the region, the CHSLD of the Hill has seen 52 of its residents and 64 employees infected.


182 case

At the end of march, the CISSS de la Gaspésie has announced the 25 cases in the wake of the positive test of an employee of the residence Mansion of le Havre. Dated as of may 27, there were nine cases in the Îles-de-la-Madeleine.


166 case

The first cases of COVID-19 appeared early in the crisis in the Abitibi-Témiscamingue region, but the number has decreased for two weeks – – – – – – after the limitation of access to the region. The MRCS of Rouyn-Noranda alone, more than 125 cases.


48 case

The region has seen the majority of these cases occur before the isolation of the region, on the 28th of march. The region has been virtually untouched by the virus later.


 16 case

With only 16 cases, the Nunavik is passed next to the crisis.


10 case

With 10 cases, the region has practically not been affected by the crisis. No new cases have been reported the past three weeks.


8 case

With only 8 cases, in the Nord-du-Québec has been almost completely spared by the crisis.

North Shore

115 case

The increase in cases on the North Shore has been hampered after its isolation. The penitentiary of Port-Cartier has been severely affected. Fifteen of the inmates, and several officers of correctional services have been infected.



The data used come from the national Institute of public health of Quebec and the ministry of Health. To better emphasize the trends, the curves are weighted in order to mitigate daily fluctuations are often due to administrative delays.
