The most recent report shows 94 people who have contracted the virus since the start of the outbreak, which began at the O’Something residence on December 22. 73 seniors and 21 employees are infected with the virus.
The CIUSSS de la Capitale-Nationale confirmed on Friday that the establishment was in the Red Zone. However, the details were awaited by the managers to know the implications of this change in the sector.
On Quebec’s south coast, hospitals are forced to perform more load shedding when hospitalization capacity is reached. Some 53 people are in hospital and 12 are in intensive care.
The CISSS de Chaudière-Appalaches has thus confirmed that the planned load shedding during the holiday season has been extended to 10 January. Load shedding will bring back healthcare workers and reassign them to hot areas to treat patients of COVID.
Nothing to help the situation, there are currently 684 workers absent from networks in the area due to the virus.
