As of Wednesday, 83,210 people have tested positive for COVID-19 in Montreal since the start of the pandemic and 4,001 of them have died. Wednesday’s updated data also shows that 744 people are currently being treated for COVID-19 in Montreal hospitals, including 117 in intensive care.
The hardest-hit areas are Parc-Extension, St-Léonard, St-Michel, St-Laurent and Ahuntsic-Cartierville, Drouin said.
Despite a decrease in new cases on the island over the past few days, Drouin is cautioning against any assumptions that the city is headed in the right direction.
“The past few weeks weren’t that encouraging for Montreal,” she said. “We have really seen an increase in our incidence rates since mid-December, which really brings us to record levels in terms of the number of new cases, even compared to the first wave.”
