Quebec, the second-most populous province in Canada has decided to impose new measures to fight COVID-19 on Thursday (Dec 30) as the country faces soaring cases of COVID 10 Omicron variant.
The local executives of Quebec have decided to ban private gatherings and dining out, as well as impose a night curfew from New Year’s Eve in an escalation of curbs to rein in rapidly rising coronavirus cases due to the Omicron variant.
“Our experts tell us that there’s a risk that we won’t be able to treat all those who need it in the coming weeks,” Quebec Premier Francois Legault said.
“This is why I’m announcing new restrictions starting tomorrow,” Francois added.
Legault revealed to stop the soaring Omicron cases, indoor sports would be halted, and places of worship will be shut, except for funerals which up to 25 people will be allowed to attend.
