Montreal police still not equipped with naloxone, despite surge in overdoses – Global News
July 15, 2020
Montreal public health authorities have sounded the alarm twice in one month, following an increase in drug overdoses.
The coronavirus pandemic has caused a drug shortage and a tainted supply of purple heroin heavily laced with fentanyl. The first public health notice was issued on June 12 and the second on July 2, all in an effort to curb the number of accidental deaths, overdoses and fentanyl addiction.
