Quebec’s health minister says it’s ‘really hard’ to figure out where COVID-19 cases originated
As COVID-19 cases continue to reach record levels in Quebec, health minister Christian Dubé continues to urge people to “stay home” as much as possible.
He explained that in the first wave of COVID-19, many cases were linked to travel and eventually brought into long-term care homes, and there was “very little” community transmission.
“It’s really hard to say, when you have a student being diagnosed at school, where he got it,” Dubé said. “Did he get it from his parents, did he get it from his friends, from an uncle who who got it at work?”
The health minister revealed that Quebec hospitals are ready for the hospitalization rates forecasted “for the next month” but stressed that people shouldn’t “test the hospital system” and need to follow the public health measures in
