False coronavirus alert at Hôtel-Dieu de Lévis. The Journal de Québec reports that last week, a man presented to the emergency room with several symptoms similar to the coronavirus. The person was placed under surveillance and samples were analyzed by the Quebec Public Health Laboratory. The results were negative.
There are only two cases of coronavirus in Quebecers, a 75-year-old man and a 73-year-old woman who was cruising in Japan. They are still in this country and we do not know when they will be able to return to Quebec.
To date, the coronavirus has killed more than 1,700 out of 72,000 people infected. China is mainly affected.
