Dr. Boileau meets the press without François Legault | Coronavirus


The acting national director of public health will speak at 3 p.m.

For the occasion, he will be accompanied by Michèle de Guise, interim CEO of the Institut national d’excellence en santé et en services sociaux (INESSS), and Marie-France Raynault, senior strategic medical advisor to the Direction générale de public health from the Ministry of Health and Social Services (MSSS).

Holding separate public health and government press conferences had been a longstanding demand of opposition parties in the National Assembly. Dr. Boileau said Tuesday that this request would soon be granted. However, the Prime Minister’s office quickly indicated that it would continue to organize joint press conferences with public health if necessary.

Thursday’s meeting should be an opportunity for Dr. Boileau to comment on the Legault government’s idea of ​​imposing a health contribution, believes the Parti Québécois.

Public health will take stock of the pandemic as Quebec recorded a first significant drop in hospitalizations on Thursday. This trend should also continue for the next two weeks, said theNational Institute of Excellence in Health and Social Services at the end of the morning.
