The new cases identified on Saturday bring the average number of daily cases calculated over seven days to 6,922. The trend is therefore upwards by 175%.

Instead, the four additional deaths bring the daily average to four. The trend remains stable.

A total of 458 people are hospitalized as a result of COVID-19, 31 fewer than the previous day. Of these, 89 are in intensive care.

A drop in hospitalizations was also reported on Christmas Day 2020, but the following days were marked by a sharp increase. The number of people hospitalized had increased from 1,053 to 928. The following day, more than 150 people had to be admitted to a health facility. The same phenomenon could be seen on New Year’s Day in 2020.

Quebec surpassed the milestone of one million third doses administered on Saturday. More than half of people 80 and older have received three doses. 11.8% of the population received a third dose of the vaccine.

In total, 84.7% of Quebecers have received a dose of the vaccine. Rather, 77.7% of the province’s population received two injections.

Because testing centers are overwhelmed, the number of daily cases is likely to be underestimated in recent days, government officials have argued.
