Verdun hospital becomes a hotspot

Verdun General has become a COVID-19 hotspot where at least two doctors and 35 patients have the virus.

The mayor is now asking us to stay in our neighbourhoods and says police will be patrolling six big parks – Maisonneuve, Lafontaine, Mount Royal, Jeanne-Mance, Laurier and along the Lachine Canal – to break up any gatherings.

City cases are now up to 2,642; 17 people have died so far in Montreal. The curve is still on an upswing in the city.
