Christian Dubé Shared Data Showing Quebec's 'Worrisome' Rise In COVID-19 Cases Since Nov 1

Quebec's Health Minister Christian Dubé took to social networks on Sunday afternoon to inform the public that we're seeing an "upward trend" in COVID-19 cases in Quebec right now, expressing particular concern for two regions in the province.

"The situation is very worrisome in certain regions, mainly in Sag-Lac-St-Jean and Lanaudière, which have recently moved to the red zone," Dubé tweeted.

The Health Minister also shared a table showing the daily case count in every Quebec region since November 1.

Premier François Legault shared the Health Minister's tweet and added: "A worrying increase in the number of cases in several regions. Efforts must be made to reduce our contacts.
Lives are at stake."

In the past week, there was only one out of the seven days where Quebec saw less than 1,000 new cases of coronavirus. 

And on November 7, the province saw the highest number of daily new cases since the beginning of the pandemic: 1,397.

Christian Dubé stressed that "we must increase our efforts to break the wave."
