  • Quebec City health network ‘on brink of service breakdown,’ says deputy premier

"The healthcare system might not be able to take care of you anymore in certain cases", she said in French from Quebec City.

The Capitale nationale region, which includes Quebec City, holds the dubious distinction of having the highest number of active cases in the province per 100,000 people - rising from 79 to 161 in three weeks.

Guilbault says red zone regions in Quebec are "on the brink of a service breakdown" and cited that the number of cases in the Chaudière-Appalaches have quadrupled while deaths have increased by five.

Quebec City Mayor Régis Labeaume, who took part in the press conference, added: "We are a tipping point".

She says she's anxious the public is no longer taking the government's health directives seriously, claiming the two regions have reached a "tipping point".

As of Friday, 82,792 people are confirmed recovered from COVID-19 in the province, which is an increase of 759 from the number reported 24 hours earlier.

Quebec is reporting 1,009 new cases of COVID-19 today as well as 26 more deaths attributed to the virus. Authorities say only five of those deaths occurred within the past 24 hours, with most from between October 17 and October 22.

However, more men than women end up hospitalized in intensive care after receiving a positive diagnosis.

Also Friday, a Quebec health institute projected that the capacity dedicated to COVID-19 patients across the province's health network isn't expected to be surpassed.

The age group most affected by COVID-19 is the 20-29-year-old bracket, and, as was the case in the spring, women are contracting the virus more than men in Quebec. Women also account for 54.7 per cent of deaths due to the disease. "We must continue to limit our number of contacts and reduce the number of cases".
