The Quebec coroner’s office will investigate the deaths of 31 seniors at a private long-term care facility west of Montreal.
The office says in a statement that it will probe the circumstances surrounding the deaths and issue recommendations if needed.
Premier Francois Legault said Saturday that at least five of the deaths at the Residence Herron in Dorval, Quebec, were due to COVID-19.
A police investigation was launched after regional health authorities obtained an order to access patient files at the residence and learned of the dozens of deaths that had occurred since March 13th.
