Montreal/Quebec a Covid-19 epicenter

Quebec announced Saturday that 82 more people have died of COVID-19, and 763 more cases have been confirmed in 24 hours. The total number of deaths due to the virus in the province is now 3,483, and there are 42,183 confirmed cases of coronavirus. Quebec began reopening retail stores, elementary schools and daycares off the island of Montreal May 11. Montreal will remain closed until at least June 1.

Montreal continues to be the hardest hit region in Canada by the virus with 372 new cases confirmed Saturday for a total of 21,410.
This bodes poorly for when restrictions are lifted. If authorities have no control over the virus now what will improve? Peru virtually declared martial law and even soldiers patrolling the streets did nothing to slow Covid-19 spread there. The reality is appearing to be many more will inevitably die from Covid-19. 13 US sailors recently caught the virus twice, suggesting there is little, if any, immunity after a recovery.
