Quebec reports 95 new cases, one more death

Quebec has seen 24 new cases of COVID-19 in the past 24 hours, bringing the total number of cases recorded in the province to 60,813, the Quebec Ministry of Public Health reported on Wednesday.

There was also a new death. However, there have been 11 deaths that occurred more than seven days ago. Of these, 10 were held at the Place Kensington retirement home in Westmount last spring. They had not been registered earlier due to a “data transmission problem,” said Quebec’s public health ministry.

This adjustment brings the total number of residents who died at Kensington Place to 19.

“The Ministry of Health is working to ensure that a similar situation does not happen again,” the ministry wrote in a statement. There are no COVID-19 cases at the residence and the situation is under control, the ministry said.

The number of hospitalizations in the province remained stable at 151 cases. The number of intensive care patients fell by one, to 20. As of Monday, 13,241 people were tested in the province.


How Britain failed its coronavirus test

“Britain hasn’t saved as many lives as others,” writes Tom McTague of The Atlantic. “It had the money, the tools and the means to respond as well as everyone else, and yet more of its inhabitants died than anywhere else in Europe. …

“One cannot avoid the sad reality set out in the numbers: if almost all countries fail, then Britain has failed more than most.

McTague provides an in-depth look at what went wrong in Britain.
