Since 2017, Normand Fonseca has been pedaling. He does so to advance cancer research, but especially to give back for all the help he received when himself was fighting the disease. The man, who lives in Sainte-Thérèse, was first diagnosed with lymphoma in 2012. He underwent treatment at the Centre intégré de cancérologie de Laval (CICL) until the end of the year.

The Centre intégré de santé et de services sociaux (CISSS) of Laval announced an increase of 354 confirmed cases of COVID-19 over the past week. This brings Laval’s total to 75,522 confirmed cases since the start of the pandemic. However, let’s recall that the general population can now obtain rapid screening tests, and that screening centres offer PCR tests to only specific groups of the population, which could explain such a variation in the data from the last 29 reports. Unfortunately, 1,145 Laval citizens died from it, which represents an increase of one compared to the previous seven days. As…
