In the latest updates about COVID-19 in Montreal, we discover that, as of May 10, the region now has 19,197 confirmed cases, which makes up over half of the province's 37,721 cases. During a press conference on May 9, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau admitted that he is worried about Montrealers right now. In looking at the case count in every one of the city's boroughs, it shows that seven of them have over 1,000 cases each.\nThe hardest hit boroughs include Ahuntsic–Cartierville, Côte-des-Neiges–Notre-Dame-de-Grâce, Mercier–Hochelaga-Maisonneuve, Montréal-Nord, Rivière-des-Prairies–Pointe-aux-Trembles, Rosemont–La Petite Patrie, and Villeray–Saint-Michel–Parc-Extension.\nWe continue to be asked not to travel within different regions in Quebec, as requested by the provincial government, and within Montreal, as asked by Mayor Valérie Plante.\nThe city's state of emergency has been renewed again until May 11, which gives police officers "exceptional powers" to enforce social distancing measures.\nVarious new measures are being taken to help properly prepare the city for a safe deconfinement, including heightened testing in affected areas, more pedestrian and biker only streets, and recommending the wearing of face masks in places like public transportation.\nBelow is the most recent case count per Montreal borough as of May 10 at 1:30 p.m.\nMatthias Mullie | Unsplash\nAhuntsic–Cartierville – 1,585 Anjou – 436 Baie-D'Urfé – 11 Beaconsfield – 45 Côte-des-Neiges–Notre-Dame-de-Grâce – 1,559 Côte-Saint-Luc – 400 Dollard-des-Ormeaux – 282 Dorval – 145 Hampstead – 48 Kirkland – 82 Lachine – 407 LaSalle – 927 L'Île-Bizard–Sainte-Geneviève – 136 Mercier–Hochelaga-Maisonneuve – 1,463 Montréal-Est – 26 Montréal-Nord – 1,762 Montréal-Ouest – 16 Mont-Royal – 222 Outremont – 221 Pierrefonds–Roxboro – 357 Plateau-Mont-Royal – 685 Pointe-Claire – 143 Rivière-des-Prairies–Pointe-aux-Trembles – 1,443 Rosemont–La Petite Patrie – 1,075Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue – 15 Saint-Laurent – 678 Saint-Léonard – 743 Senneville – 5 or lessSud-Ouest – 717 Verdun – 762 Ville-Marie – 523 Villeray–Saint-Michel–Parc-Extension – 1,364 Westmount – 143 Case location to be confirmed – 775 Total in Montreal: 19,197\nThese numbers are provided by Santé Montréal.\nAs a way to provide more testing, new mobile clinics, which will take the form of STM buses, will be going to the most affected areas in the city during the upcoming weeks.\nLa première clinique de dépistage mobile est inaugurée devant l’Hôtel-Dieu 👏🚍 Merci à Dre Mylène Drouin @Santepub_Mtl et Philippe @schnobb de la @stm_nouvelles pour leur collaboration.
