Advocates says homeless being left behind in Montreal’s fight with Covid-19

With nearly 8,000 confirmed cases of Covid-19, the city of Montreal is a new coronavirus hotspot.

Quebec has been hit particularly hard by the virus and leads the country with 17,748 confirmed cases and 688 people have died.

While many steps have been taken by the city and the province to mitigate the spread of the virus, advocates say one group in particular has been forgotten.
