Quebec Now Has 12,846 Confirmed COVID-19 Cases & Montreal Remains The Epicentre

Although the Government of Quebec did not hold a public briefing on April 12, the province was still updated on the current coronavirus situation on the government's official website. As of now, there are 12,846 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Quebec. A total of 328 people have died in the province due to the coronavirus.

On April 11, there were 12,292 confirmed cases. This means there has been an increase of 554 cases within the past 24 hours.

The good news is that 113,925 have tested negative for coronavirus in Quebec, which proves just how much the province has been testing.

And a Google statistic recently showed that Quebec is doing the best job in all of North America in regards to staying home and practicing social distancing, which Legault admitted to being extremely proud of.

Montreal remains the epicentre for the virus in the province, with a total of 6,088 cases as of April 12.

The government continues to ask that people do not travel in between regions, and Mayor Plante specifically asked Montrealers to remain in their own neighbourhoods.

A full breakdown of the number of cases per Quebec region is available here.

Below is Santé Québec's most recent update.

The tweet confirms that there are now 12,846 cases of COVID-19 in the province.

Montreal has previously been referred to as a "hotspot" for the virus, and the numbers of April 12 prove that it continues to be one.

The other Quebec regions with the highest number of cases include Montérégie with 1,325 cases, Laval with 1,231, and Lanaudière with 808.

On April 10, Premier François Legault reminded us that "better days are coming."

Legault continuously tells Quebecers that we cannot give up and that we must continue to follow public health guidelines in order to stop the spread of COVID-19 in the province.

Stay safe, Quebec.
