Quebec’s director of public health Dr. Horacio Arruda says the province is now at the start of a second wave of the COVID-19 health crisis as cases surged once again Monday. The declaration comes as the health crisis is continuing to pick up steam after health authorities reported 586 new cases Monday, bringing the total to 68,128.

As Mike Armstrong reports, Arruda is pleading with people to do everything possible to reverse the trend.
