TMR CHSLD: every single resident got sick

There’s a CHSLD in the Town of Mount Royal where every one of the 226 residents caught the virus. At least 70 are dead. It’s being blamed on a defective ventilation system, but on looking it up, I find the home is located right beside the Met where autoroute 15 t-bones in. Air pollution may be a factor in making the virus deadlier.

And now the staff are getting sick too.

Aaron Derfel has a piece Thursday comparing the CHSLD debacle with the cruise ship crisis that was most of the world’s introduction to COVID-19.

Numbers suggest that community transmission is up, and with the weather expected to get warmer and nicer during and after the long weekend, this verges on being ominous.
