Canada took on Monday, the symbolic milestone of 120 000 infections COVID-19 since the beginning of the pandemic.
At the end of the day, the country was 623 people infected by the coronavirus by more than the day before, for a total of 120 132 to this day. By contrast, only six deaths – five in Alberta and one in Quebec – are added to the balance sheet, for a total of 8986 Canadians have died after having contracted the virus.
In Quebec, all eyes are riveted on the minister of Education, Jean-François Roberge, who has notably announced that students from the 5th year of primary school will wear a mask in common areas of the schools in the school year.
By chance, this announcement coincided with the publication of the best record in Quebec for almost a month. In fact, the Province has announced on Monday to have spotted fewer than 100 cases of COVID-19 (98) in the past 24 hours for the first time since last July 11.
The end of the series in Ontario
For its part, Ontario has put an end to a sequence for a record-breaking week with less than 100 new cases per day by announcing that they have detected 115 infections on its territory.
This setback has not discouraged the minister of Health of the province. “Although this is a slight increase and the end of our sequence, we must not lose sight of the fact that, thanks to our efforts, the trend remains to the downside in the province,” stressed Christine Elliott on his Twitter account.
However, Ontario announced that the Windsor-Essex region will be able to finally, on Wednesday, to join the rest of Ontario to phase 3 of the plan déconfinement, which allows in particular the reopening of the dining rooms of the restaurants and training centers. The region, which has been facing several outbreaks among foreign workers, had had to skip his turn to repeat since the entry of the first regions of Ontario in the phase 3, on the 17th of July last.
Little improvement in the West
In addition, the Alberta and British Columbia have continued to post figures that are stagnating. The main Prairie province has identified 257 new cases during the last three days, in addition to five deaths, whereas the Pacific has been reported with 131 infections in 72 hours.
British Columbia has, well, crossed the milestone of 4000 infections COVID-19.
The chief medical health officer for the province, Dr. Bonnie Henry, has called on its citizens to stop participating private parties. “[The outbreaks] occur because people are in contact together, often on the inside, for several hours with a crowd of people they don’t know,” she warned.
