Quebec Says It's One Of The Places Where The Pandemic Is Currently 'Best Controlled'

At a press conference on Tuesday, Health Minister Christian Dubé claimed that with an average of about 80 cases a day in Quebec, or about 10 cases per million inhabitants, the province is "among the places where the pandemic is currently [...] best controlled in the world."

The minister thanked all Quebecers for their efforts in mitigating the spread of the virus but highlighted that this wasn't achieved "by magic."

The ratio of 10 cases per million inhabitants places Quebec among the places where the pandemic is currently [...] best controlled in the world.

"The vast majority of Quebecers [...] are familiar with the [health] rules," said Dubé. "We're doing a lot of testing and in fact, we're surpassing our objectives." 

Dubé's statement comes as the province prepares for back-to-school season and a group of doctors sends an open letter to the government demanding that it do more to protect students and teachers. 

As of August 24, Quebec has had a total of 61,803 confirmed cases of COVID-19.
