Coronavirus: Quebec Premier François Legault says COVID Alert app now available in province | FULL

Quebec Premier François Legault announced an additional tool in the fight to stem the transmission of the novel coronavirus in the province.

Quebecers can now download and activate the COVID Alert app already used in seven provinces across the country.

Quebec was slow to make the application available, citing worries about possible breaches of user privacy.

“We wanted to be sure there is no risk for the personal data of users,” Legault said. “We have come to the conclusion that the app is secure. Neither the public health, the government nor your contacts can know where you’ve been or who you’ve met.”

The mobile phone application sends a warning when you have been in contact with someone who has COVID-19.

Legault urged Quebecers to make use of the new tool.

    Oh, look, it's Premier Cuomo giving another press conference. Thanks, Quebec, for being the New York/New Jersey of Canada. If it weren't for Quebec, you'd be hard-pressed to even know there's a COVID problem.

    Quebec, a province with 23% of the national population, accounts for 62% of all the COVID deaths in the country.

    If authorities do not take draconian measures the pandemic will grow exponentially and the COVID will paralyze our health care system and will hurt nurses and doctors. Also, not only COVID patient need care. Many patients suffer, waiting for health care resources when COVID pandemics to end, while so many irresponsible people could not care less. Unfortunately too many people are irresponsible. I see them everywhere every day. They do not keep distance, they do not wear masks and are coughing in public places and do not cover their mouths. And I do not see the by-law enforcement officers and police to force compliance. Without enforcement all the rules and begging are useless. The 20/80 rule teaches us that majority of people are rams in every society and understand only fear. Most people do not even understand what "exponential grow" means so they do not appreciate the warnings. Why it is so difficult to temporarily abstain from visiting the restaurants and throwing parties? It is beyond me. Rams.

    This has hidden uses… learn from history and what empires and governments have done and do not use this App!

    Whatever happened to 2 weeks lockdown to bend the curve, slowing down the spread to help hospitals from getting overwhelmed.
    Now they want to completely get rid of it.
    IMPOSSIBLE!

    They opened everything up for the summer to make a shitload of cash from gasoline at the pumps.

    The price of oil was down and is still low yet the price at the pumps slowly climbed to where they are today.

    It’s. That. Simple. !!

    Need to end this 'cases' nonsense. Measure by hospitalizations, especially in ICU. Of course you're going to find a lot more cases because all of the students are being tested and even the test numbers show that with the highest rates in 20-33 year olds.
