  • MONTREAL QUE. MARCH 23 2020- Hazel Wight and her twin brother Owen show some of the signs they display in the window of their home in NDG on Monday

"It's true that they play hardball in certain countries", he said, "but we're in the game too".

The 6,101 confirmed infections represent an augmentation of 583 from the day before.

The bright spot was the number of patients in intensive care, which rose by only four to 82, Legault said.

Earlier this week, Health Minister Danielle McCann said the province had gone through a year's worth of equipment in a month.

Hajdu said provinces are able to secure orders themselves, but she encouraged provinces and territories to engage in bulk procurement, giving Canada more clout to bid competitively.

In Quebec, 61 people are now confirmed to have died of COVID-19.

"I think these were decisions that have been hard on the economy, but they will save lives", Legault said.

He later clarified his comment on Ford to say some equipment that had been slated to go to Ontario would instead be sent to Quebec.

In his daily news conference, Legault rejected comparisons with neighbouring Ontario, which has less than half the number of cases, despite its bigger population.

He said he's optimistic about procuring what the province needs and is hopeful that some items, such as gowns, can be made locally by Quebec companies using slightly different materials.

"We were talking about 10,000 masks, we don't refuse any equipment, but, you know, 10,000 masks compared to our daily consumption, it's a small amount", he said.

In Montreal, where cases number almost 2,000, Mayor Valerie Plante announced the city was opening two additional new shelters to serve the homeless, and is in the process of transforming a former hospital into an isolation ward.

Legault said 519 of the province's roughly 2200 seniors homes and long-term care facilities have reported cases, and he urged Quebecers to refrain from visiting elderly people who are highly susceptible to the virus.

Plante also announced the creation of three more outdoor day centres, bringing the city's total to five, to offer meals, bathrooms and other services to the city's most vulnerable.

McCann said Quebec has freed up some 7,000 hospital beds in recent weeks, including nearly 600 intensive care ones - something that "has never been seen before" in the province.

Despite the high number of cases in Montreal, Legault and Drouin both said there were no plans to quarantine the city.
