Coronavirus: Quebec deaths climb by 82, health-care whistleblower email announced

The Quebec government said it created a new email address where health-care workers can confidentially share what is happening on the ground during the COVID-19 crisis.

Health Minister Danielle McCann announced the new anonymous tip address, [email protected], in a press release on Saturday which said it will allow health workers to raise issues to the government’s attention.

On Saturday, Quebec saw 82 more COVID-19 deaths in 24 hours, bringing the death toll for the province to 3,483.

On Friday, McCann acknowledged that there was still a sort of code of silence preventing health-care workers from speaking to media. She said she however “lifted the omerta” code on May 1. McCann said she would soon announce a new avenue for health sector staff to voice their concerns and experiences.
