COVID-19 cases are increasing in some regions of the world
In its weekly epidemiological report, the World Health Organization ( WHO) indicates that new cases of COVID-19 stabilized during the period from May 9 to May 15, with more than 3.6 million cases reported. As for the number of new weekly deaths, it continues to decline.
However, new weekly cases increased in the Eastern Mediterranean region (+63%), in the Americas region (+26% ), in the Western Pacific Region (+14%) and in the African Region (+6%).
In Quebec, 626 new cases have been identified, but this number is not representative of the situation. Indeed, access to screening centers is restricted to priority clienteles, recalls the Ministry of Health and Social Services.
