Quebec Is Going To Share Daily COVID-19 Numbers Again After Huge Backlash

After a huge backlash, newly sworn-in Quebec Health Minister Christian Dubé announced that the province will resume publishing daily COVID-19 numbers

On Thursday, Dominique Anglade, Quebec Liberal Party leader, called the government's decision to stop publishing daily statistics "incomprehensible." 

We are listening: as of Monday, the publication of daily updates on the evolution of #COVID19 will resume.


Dubé also promised that the government will "continue to be transparent."

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Thursday that he hopes "Premier Legault will continue to be transparent and open with all Quebecers and [...] all Canadians as he has been from the very beginning." 

As of June 25, 2020, there were 55,079 total confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Quebec.
