Coronavirus: Quebec premier urges feds to ban non-essential international flights| FULL
CA, 20 Jan 2021
During a coronavirus briefing on Tuesday, Quebec Premier Francois Legault issued a demand to the federal government to ban non-essential international flights, saying he was "very worried" about people returning from a vacation abroad as COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations remain high in the province.
“For example, an all-included package to Punta Cana, do we really need these trips right now?” he said.
Legault urged the federal government to better enforce quarantine measures for vacationers returning from abroad, saying robocalls are not sufficient.
Quebec is reporting 1,386 new cases and 55 additional deaths linked to the novel coronavirus pandemic Tuesday.
Hospitalizations rose by nine to 1,500. Of those patients, 212 are in intensive care, a drop of five from the previous day.
