COVID-19: Legault confident in the face of a possible second wave

COVID-19: Legault confiant face à une possible deuxième vague

The prime minister François Legault believes that certain measures and some adjustments will help to better protect Quebecers in the face of a second wave of COVID-19.

Passage in the Mauricie region on Friday, the prime minister has pointed the finger at the poor use of protective equipment by staff in NURSING homes. The absence of managers in each institution to relay protection measures and ensure their application has had an impact.

“Currently, it is not clear whether there is a boss or a boss in each of the NURSING homes to implement the guidelines. In management, when there is more than one person responsible, there is no one responsible,” said Mr. Legault.

The correction of these weaknesses, the limitation of movement of staff between institutions and the arrival of reinforcements in the orderlies should help better control the virus in the event of a second wave.

In the Mauricie–Centre-du-Québec, the public health directorate ensures that she will be ready if the virus to counter-attack.

“It was really a plan. It has taken concrete steps, but there are still things to refine,” said Carol Fillion, CEO of the CIUSSS Mauricie–Centre-du-Québec, who discussed the situation with François Legault.

The prime minister also proposes to add modular units to the NURSING homes until the construction of the new network of residences for seniors. “I want to have the least possible of rooms with more than one person”, has he hammered.
