Young people account for 40% of new cases of COVID-19 in Quebec city

Les jeunes représentent 40% des nouveaux cas de COVID-19 à Québec

The 15-35 years account for 40% of new cases of COVID-19 in the greater Quebec city region since the déconfinement, according to the CIUSSS of the National Capital. An increase of 15% compared to the proportion of cases in this age group during the confinement.

The loosening of the summer and the non-observance of the instructions of the public Health would be the main factors of this increase.

In the beginning of the week, the vice-premier of Québec, Geneviève Guilbault, feared that rallies interiors and private parties among the youth can boost the spread of the virus.

Three private parties in the greater Québec city area have been linked to a score of new infections in recent days.
