Premier François Legault is reiterating his warning to all Quebecers to follow the health rules and not cause more outbreaks. After noticing a decrease during the summer months, Legault explained that for the past two weeks, health experts have observed an increase in the number of new positive COVID-19 cases in Quebec. While there's no "unique cause," said Legault, health experts deduced that many factors have contributed to this increase in new cases.\n"Some sporting activities brought outbreaks, some enterprises had outbreaks, there was a marriage that caused an outbreak — as you see, there are several reasons for outbreaks in our community," said Legault.\nEditor's Choice: Here's A Collection Of Céline Dion Memes For Whenever You're Having A Bad Day\nLuckily, these localized outbreaks amongst the youth haven't resulted in an increase in deaths or hospitalizations, according to the premier.\n"A larger number of these new cases are coming from young people," highlighted Legault. "Young people are less at risk of grave complications, but we can't eliminate the possibility that [...] young people could infect more vulnerable people."\nIf the message seems familiar, it's because the CAQ and public health authorities have made this point to young people time and time again during the pandemic.\nAs there are still instances of the police having to break up large gatherings, public health authorities have once again been forced to implore young people to follow the rules.\nOne important point that was brought up by Legault was that these new cases are coming from all across Quebec, not just Montreal.\nOn a réussi avec le confinement à limiter la propagation de la COVID-19.
