Since reaching a two-month high on Friday, the number of patients in Quebec’s hospitals with COVID-19 has declined in consecutive days.
Quebec announced a drop in COVID-19 hospitalizations for the second day in a row on Sunday.
A total of 2,344 patients are hospitalized — a decrease of 27. This comes after the province’s COVID-19 hospitalizations dropped by 39 on Saturday from the two-month high of 2,410 reported on Friday.
Of the patients in hospitals with COVID-19 on Sunday, 90 are in intensive care — an increase of one.
Quebec also announced on Sunday that 20 more deaths have been attributed to the virus, bringing the province’s death toll to 14,866.
An additional 1,675 cases were confirmed through PCR testing at government clinics. Insofar as this method of testing is not accessible to most Quebecers, the case numbers are not wholly representative of the situation in the province.
