Quebec adds 20 new COVID-19 deaths as hospitalizations increase by double digits
Quebec records 20 new deaths related to COVID-19 as the number of people hospitalized increased on Monday.
Officials said the number of pandemic-related hospitalizations rose 14 to 2,425. This includes 178 people in intensive care units, an increase of one person.
This comes after 141 patients were hospitalized across the province, while 127 patients remained in the past day.
Quebec also recorded 2,240 new cases of coronavirus, but the government said the daily case count did not reflect the situation because official testing was limited to certain high-risk groups, such as teachers.
When it comes to screening, the latest information shows that 19,499 tests were performed on Saturday.
So far, the results of 66,683 rapid tests have been published by Quebe Cancer on the new government website. This includes 51,381 positive results.
The province injected 21,748 doses of COVID-19 vaccine in the past day. More than 17.9 million photos have been taken since the beginning of the campaign.
Quebec has reported 883,192 cases and 13,495 deaths throughout the health crisis. As of Monday, more than 834,000 people have recovered from the disease.
