A home for the elderly (RPA) in Donacona, in Capitale-Nationale, struggles with a major outbreak of COVID-19.
The latest report shows that 94 people have contracted the virus since the outbreak began on December 22 at the Osumite residence. 73 seniors and 21 employees have contracted the virus.
CIUSSS de la Capitale-Nationale confirmed Friday that the institution was in the red. However, managers waited for details in order to learn the implications of this change for the region.
Shedding of loads in Chaudière-Appalaches
On Quebec’s southern shore, hospitals are having to do more shedding when capacity for hospitalization is reached. About 53 people are in hospital and 12 are in intensive care.
The antibodies do not adapt well to the Omicron variant as the original virus. So our protection will be better with the third dose, but we must understand that this protection will never be as optimal as it was initially with the first virus,” said Benoit Barbu, professor of the Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Kuala Lumpur.
Thus the CISSS de Chaudière-Appalaches confirmed that the planned payload during the festive season has been extended until January 10. Clearing the load will bring health care workers home and reassign them to hot spots to treat patients with COVID-19.
Nothing helps solve the problem, there are currently 684 employees absent from network in the region due to the virus.
