According to data published by the Ministry of Health on Sunday, the number of patients in hospitals due to the coronavirus rose from 1,438 to 1,367. There are 53 people in intensive care, one less than the day before.
Five new deaths have been added to the death toll. We now deplore 15,354 deaths linked to COVID-19 since its appearance in Quebec.
The Ministry of Health also reports 454 new cases since the previous assessment. Authorities have identified more than 1.06 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, 10,469 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 91.47%. It is also reported that 87.77% of the Quebec population received a second dose and that 59,247% received a booster dose.
