A new outbreak of COVID-19 looms over the CHSLD Cooke in Trois-Rivieres where two units are currently closely monitored by the CIUSSS de la Mauricie-Center-du-Québec after two health workers became ill.
Units D2 and D3 were put into ‘activated’ mode on Wednesday evening by CIUSSS Mauricie-Center-du-Québec. This means increased vigilance and potential transition between workers and users.
Workers infected with the virus were reported to have contracted the virus outside the facility’s walls and were isolated.
Health authorities have not announced the outbreak to CHSLD Cooke at this time, because the two infected people contracted the virus in a different way. Remember that hatching requires at least two positive states connected.
Last winter, an outbreak killed 28 people at this facility.
The CIUSSS-MCQ continues to closely monitor the epidemiological situation in the region. Within one week, the number of active cases increased from 19 to 72. The transition was more pronounced in Morrissey than in the center of Quebec.
Moreover, the Trois-Rivieres sub-sector ranks third in the province in terms of COVID-19 rate per 100,000 inhabitants, with a rate of 27.8.
