  • See the complete breakdown by borough and municipality here.

With 3,713 of the province's 7,944 total cases as of April 5, Montreal is the epicentre of the pandemic in Quebec. It has touched every borough and municipality on the island but to varying degrees. While some areas, like the suburbs of Baie-D'Urfé and Montréal Est count fewer than 10 cases, 14 jurisdictions have over 100:

Ahuntsic–Cartierville (143), Côte-des-Neiges–Notre-Dame-de-Grâce (370), Côte-Saint-Luc (192), LaSalle (204), Mercier–Hochelaga-Maisonneuve (145), Outremont (113), Plateau-Mont-Royal (168), Rivière-des-Prairies–Pointe-aux-Trembles (117), Rosemont–La Petite Patrie (181), Saint-Laurent (119), Sud-Ouest (124), Verdun (105), Ville-Marie (135), and Villeray–Saint-Michel–Parc-Extension (149).

With the highest infection rate and the highest number of cases, respectively, Côte-Saint-Luc (591.7 cases for every 100,000 residents) and Côte-des-Neiges–Notre-Dame-de-Grâce are perhaps the hardest-hit areas on the island.

Côte-Saint-Luc city officials have even requested that the provincial government enforce "drastic measures" to control the spread of the virus.

But currently, no part of Montreal (including the metropolis and on-island suburbs) is under quarantine or a confinement order.

Though Mayor Plante has asked residents to not leave their neighbourhoods unless it's necessary.

As the number of cases in Montreal grows, social distancing requirements have becomes more severe.

The SPVM is prepared to issue fines of between $1,000 and $6,000 to individuals who gather in groups or who loiter within two metres of another person.

The mayor has threatened to close the parks if residents do not respect these rules.

Already, on Sunday, the city closed a number of public spaces to prevent pedestrian congestion.

The Government of Quebec is expected to release its projections for the outbreak peak in the coming days.

But, on Sunday, officials extended the closure of non-essential businesses from April 13 to May 4, indicating that Montrealers have to wait until at least then for things to start returning to normal.
