Disturbing in Beauce and Charlevoix
It is in Beauce that the situation is most worrying, while on Tuesday the situation of cases of contamination was the worst in proportion to the population, with 31 cases per 100,000 inhabitants.
In addition, the situation continues to cause concern in the Charlevoix region, while an outbreak, which began on October 23 at the Private Residence of the Builders in Baie-Saint-Paul, took away six users who resided there.
Among the victims, there are five sisters of the Congregation of the Little Franciscans of Mary. They are more than forty to live at this residence. To date, the CIUSSS de la Capitale-Nationale has reported 29 active cases for this RPA.
In Chaudière-Appalaches, more precisely at the CHSLD Cap-Saint-Ignace, a new case has been reported, bringing the number of contaminated users to 30. For now, 70% of residents are infected with the virus.
Several other regions are under the microscope, as the virus appears to be gaining ground. This is particularly the case of Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean, Lanaudière, Mauricie, Center-du-Québec and Gaspésie, where several outbreaks have occurred in the last days.
