In comparison, the number of cases identified in and around Quebec over the past week has ranged from six to nine per day, while we have to go back to the cases announced on June 13 to find a two-digit balance.
However, Capitale-Nationale is not the only hotel to thrive in central and eastern Quebec. Bas-Saint-Laurent with 0 cases and Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean with hardly two infections also continue to look good.
The Chodier-Appalachian region, hit by a major outbreak in Bose this spring, is also turning its back on the pandemic, with just five infections detected in the past 24 hours, or as many as in Saturday’s report.
None of these regions regretted another death on Sunday.
In general, in Quebec over the past day, only 103 new cases of infection were recorded, in addition to two deaths.
The vast majority of infections still occur in metropolitan areas, including Montreal, Laval, Monerezhi, Lanaudier and Laurentian.
