Detailed COVID-19 stats released for Montreal

Montreal health authority statistics for Côte St. Luc.

Santé Publique de Montréal has released detailed statistics regarding COVID-19 cases and deaths in the various boroughs and cities on the island of Montreal.

They include, as of May 12:

• On the island of Montreal as a whole, there were 19,878 cases and 2,008 deaths, of which 3,743 cases were health care workers. One thousand six hundred and fifty deaths were in closed milieus, which includes CHSLDs, private seniors homes, rehabilitation centres and hospitals. Cases reached peaks between mid-April and early May.

• Côte St. Luc had 405 cases and 22 deaths. Thirty of the cases are health care workers, and 15 of the 22 deaths (68 percent) were in “closed milieus.” Cases in Côte St. Luc reached peaks March 22 and April 5, and fell off sharply afterwards.

(Note: the stats say cases are assigned to a district on the basis of the postal code of a residence, but The Suburban knows for a fact that some residents in Côte des Neiges-NDG, particularly Snowdon, receive mailings destined for Cote St. Luc residents based on their postal codes.)
