Of those patients, 24 are in intensive care, a decrease of seven.

The province announced that seven more fatalities have been attributed to the virus, bringing its cumulative death toll to 15,433.

The seven-day rolling average of deaths is six.

The province that announced a further 699 cases have been confirmed through PCR testing at its 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.

On Tuesday, Quebec administered 6,136 vaccine doses.

Since the start of its vaccination campaign, the province has received 23,083,695 doses, of which it has administered 19,921,680.
