According to data released by the Ministry of Health on Sunday, the number of patients in hospitals due to the coronavirus rose from 1,691 to 1,622. However, there are 55 people in intensive care, two more than the day before.

Three new deaths have been added to the death toll. We now deplore 15,279 deaths linked to COVID-19 since its appearance in Quebec.

The Ministry of Health also reports 634 new cases since the previous assessment. Authorities have identified more than 1.057 million cases of infection since the start of the pandemic. However, the number of cases listed is not representative of the situation since access to screening centers is restricted to priority clienteles.

According to the VaccinTrackerQC site, 15,449 vaccine doses have been administered in the past 24 hours, largely second booster doses.

The percentage of people aged 5 and over who received a first dose is 91.45%. It is also reported that 87.72% of the Quebec population received a second dose and that 59.3% received a booster dose.

It will be interesting to observe the effects of lifting the wearing of mandatory masks in most public places in Quebec on these data over the coming weeks.

Wearing a face covering is no longer mandatory in public places in Quebec since Saturday, except in public transport and places where care is provided, such as hospitals, CHSLDs and medical clinics.
