Global News published this video item, entitled “Coronavirus: Quebec considers curfew to curb COVID-19 surge” – below is their description.
As the end of the holiday lockdown looms and some health experts call for tighter restrictions, Quebec officials are to set to address the rapid progression of the COVID-19 pandemic — and whether measures and closures will be extended.
Premier François Legault initially called a news conference for Tuesday evening but then, in an unusual move, it was delayed by a full day to 5 p.m. Wednesday.
Quebec is currently under a partial lockdown, which includes the closure of schools and non-essential businesses until Jan. 11 to stem the tide of the novel coronavirus. In recent weeks, hospitalizations and cases have soared — putting pressure on the province’s already stretched-thin health-care system.
Mike Armstrong hears from an epidemiologist who says a curfew is needed.
