Quebec's COVID-19 Numbers Are Stable But Some Regions Are Getting Worse

At a press conference on Tuesday, Premier François Legault affirmed that for the past five weeks, the daily COVID-19 case counts in Quebec have remained relatively stable, with "around 1,000 new cases a day." 

Some regions in the province, however, are actually seeing the situation worsen.

We see that in some places there are big improvements, but [...] in other places, there is deterioration.

Regarding Montreal, Legault said that "things have stabilized." The region reported 209 new cases on November 3.

The situation in Quebec City has also improved.

Two regions have "deteriorated a lot," said the premier, namely, Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean and Lanaudière-Nord. 

"I want to ask [...] the citizens of these two regions, Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean and Lanaudière-Nord, to pay special attention to the reduction of contacts," said Legault. 

"This is important because we have to encourage ourselves a little, we have succeeded much better, so far, in the second wave, than elsewhere in the world."

He instructed Quebecers to use the Capitale-Nationale region as their example.

"If we had experienced throughout Quebec what we have experienced in recent weeks in the Capitale-Nationale, we would have seen a great improvement," he said.

"We have to make efforts, we have to say bravo to the people of Quebec City, and the other regions have to be inspired by Quebec City to see a decrease in total."
