Global News published this video item, entitled “Coronavirus: How the pandemic exacerbates the plight facing homeless Canadians” – below is their description.

Homeless people are struggling more during the COVID-19 pandemic, including in Quebec. The homeless population in Montreal has been hit particularly hard, with several shelters forced to operate at a reduced capacity due to public health guidelines and COVID-19 outbreaks.

The recent death of 51-year-old Raphaël André, a homeless man in Montreal, is also highlighting the crisis facing homeless Canadians.

Amanda Jelowicki explains how Quebec’s curfew is adding to the stress, and what overwhelmed and understaffed shelters are being forced to do.
