In the last hours, hospitalizations continued to increase, six from the previous day. They are now 262 hospitalized patients, including 95 in intensive care, an increase of eight from Thursday. Most of them are non-immune people.
Three additional deaths have also been added to the already heavy toll in Quebec, where COVID-19 has been the deadliest since the start of the pandemic. La Belle Province had 11,318 deaths on Friday.
In the last 24 hours, 21,813 vaccine doses and 1,251 doses before September 16 were given to Quebecers, for a total of 12,709,800 doses administered in Quebec.
In Ontario, Public Health has reported 795 new cases of COVID-19, down from Thursday (-69).
Eight deaths have been added to the province’s death toll, five of which occurred last month, the Ford government said.
In New Brunswick, Public Health is concerned about reaching a new high of active cases in its province. At the height of the crisis, last January, the province recorded 348. There were 336 on Thursday.
Starting next week, anyone entering New Brunswick will need to register their trip in advance.
A measure that also applies to New Brunswickers returning to the province. It will also be the entry into force of the vaccine passport in the Maritime province, which is thus backing down after having greatly reduced its health measures in August.
For its part, Nova Scotia has reported 18 new cases and no deaths.
Between March 15 and September 16, 2021, 91.9% of people infected with the coronavirus were not vaccinated, the Nova Scotia government revealed on Friday. During this period, 88.1% of those hospitalized and 85.7% of those who died were not vaccinated.
The state of emergency has been extended until October 3 in the province.
