Quebec’s COVID-19 hospitalizations jump by 41 as province logs 7 new deaths

Quebec reported seven new deaths attributed to COVID-19 amid a jump in hospitalizations Tuesday.

There were 1,043 patients being treated for the disease in hospitals across the province, an increase of 41 compared with the previous day. This comes after 100 people were admitted and 59 left.

Of those hospitalized, 46 Quebecers were in intensive care units — a decrease of two in the past 24-hour period.

The daily tally included 1,383 new novel coronavirus cases, but this number is not reflective of the situation since PCR screening is limited to high-risk groups.

Quebec’s official caseload has reached 946,889 while the death toll linked to the virus stood at 14,272.
