COVID-19

Two new cases of COVID-19 in Upper Gaspesie

On the same day that the region’s preparedness was downgraded to sustainability, three classes at Gabrielle-le-Courtois High School were isolated, as well as anyone who had contact with the students.

The Municipal Council of Sainte-Anne-de-Monts, which was supposed to take place in public, will be virtual. Mayor Simon Deschene is one of those who must isolate themselves as a precaution.

In recent days, about ten cases have been added to the MRC losses. Regional Director of Public Health, Dr. Yves Bonnier-Viger, says the situation is serious, but under control.

The public health spokesman takes this opportunity to remind that the rapid spread of the coronavirus is still possible and that people must continue to protect themselves and others from possible infection.

These two new positive COVID-19 results are added to the results of Gaspésie-les-de-la-Madeleine, for a total of 2,032 cases.

Public health also reports two new people believed to have recovered.

As health authorities identify two new recoveries, the number of active carriers of SARS-CoV-2 remains the same as the day before. Less than five of these still officially infectious people live in MRC d’Avignon, with the rest in Haute-Gaspésie, according to a public health report.

46 gaspets were hospitalized after being infected with the coronavirus. Only one of these people is still in the hospital.

Vaccination from 12 to 17 years old

Vaccination operations continue in the Gaspesie-Ile de la Madeleine region. As of June 6, 75% of the population has already received the first dose of the vaccine, and 16.8% – the second dose.

Already, 41% of children aged 12 to 17 have been vaccinated with the vaccine.

The Gaspesie Integrated Health and Human Services Center took an extensive tour last Friday to complete vaccinations in schools.

Decrease in Quebec

In Lower Saint Laurent, three new people infected with COVID-19 have been identified. These are three people who live in the MRC de Rivière-du-Loup.

In Quebec, all rates are declining.

Quebec health authorities are reporting 194 new cases of COVID-19, as well as 3 additional deaths from the disease. The number of hospitalizations decreased by 9 compared to the previous day, with a total of 265 people. About 58 patients are still in intensive care, three fewer than on Sunday.
