A CHSLD in Marieville, in Montérégie, is said to be struggling with a very serious outbreak when there are at least 80 cases of COVID-19.
According to information gathered by TVA Nouvelles, there could be up to 90 infections among residents and staff of the CHSLD Sainte-Croix.
The figures were put forward by employees and members of the Federation interprofessionnelle de la santé du Québec (FIQ).
The CISSS Montérégie-Center confirmed in Wednesday afternoon that there were 37 active cases among residents as well as 13 deaths.
The CISSS claims to have taken measures to limit this outbreak, including the strengthening of medical teams and massive screening.
For the moment, it is impossible to give the origin of this major outbreak.
“We have learned the figures which are 36 positive patients on the 20th with 11 deaths, plus the staff who have been affected, which is around 45”, explains a spokesperson for the FIQ.
A situation considered particularly worrying for the union, particularly in the context of a labor shortage. “Those who are still in place suffer a lot,” he lamented.
The employees met on the spot did not hide their concern, especially among those who had already experienced the first wave.
