A gym in Quebec City has now been linked to cases of COVID after staff and clients got infected and unknowingly carried the virus to grocery stores, homes, and workplaces, the regional health authority said Wednesday. Those primary cases are believed to have spread the virus to some 36 workplaces, including restaurants, grocery stores, offices, retail stores and construction sites, ultimately infecting another people, the authority said in an .
While the regional health authority has not confirmed any deaths linked to the outbreak, on Wednesday the sister of a year-old man who was a client of the gym told The Canadian Press via Facebook that her brother had died after catching the virus.
At one point, he said, he turned to his spouse and commented on the lax mask-wearing in the gym. The year-old began feeling tired in late March, which he attributed to starting to work out again after a few months of gyms being closed. When he saw the gym post about a COVID case, he went to get tested and received a positive result.
His spouse became infected too, he said, as did one of his two young children. While he feels lucky not to have been seriously ill, his symptoms included fever, chills, a loss of taste and a lung infection. In an interview, he said gyms can be higher risk settings because people breathe heavily and expel more droplets.
But he said he blames the situation on a combination of factors, including general societal complacency with safety measures, an insufficiently strict owner and variants of COVID that spread easily.
