More than 3,000 people have now died due to COVID-19 in Quebec. A total of 38,469 people have been diagnosed with COVID-19 in the province.
There are currently a total of 1,838 people who are hospitalized with COVID-19, and 193 people in intensive care.
The primary area of concern in the province is Montreal.
“We are all concerned about Montreal, me above all,” Premier François Legault said during a press conference on Monday.
“If the situation in Montreal is not under control, we will delay the reopening of businesses, schools and daycare centres.”
Currently the province’s plan is to reopen schools and businesses in the Montreal area on May 25, however fears of a secondary outbreak as the situation does not yet seem to be controlled may result in further delays for the region.
