COVID-19: La peste

A summary of the current COVID-19 situation in Le Devoir gives some numbers.

A case of the virus has been spotted at Collège Jean-de-Brébeuf (and another at Université Laval in Quebec City).

Desjardins is closing half its branches; the Cirque du Soleil is laying off a lot of people.

Dr. Mylène Drouin, director of the city’s public health department, says she’s certain there have been cases of community transmission here that have not yet come to light.

As noted below (and as I’ve also seen on Facebook) the STM union is directing bus drivers to tape off the front door area to distance themselves from passengers, and only allow boarding via the back door.
