The number of confirmed COVID-19 positive cases in Quebec surpassed 100,000 this past weekend and as of this morning, the province reported 10 more deaths and 808 new infections.
Two deaths have been attributed to the past 24 hours, six from between Oct. 19 and 24 and two from an unknown date.
The total number of cases in the province since the start of the pandemic now stands at 100,922 with 6,153 deaths.
With the number of cases continuing to rise, Montreal’s executive committee has renewed its state of emergency for at least five more days for the metropolitan area.
The state of emergency grants “exceptional powers to the agglomeration,” enabling it to respond to the current pandemic across its territory.
