Quebec health authorities reported 1,029 new cases of COVID-19 on Wednesday morning, bringing the total number of cases since the start of the pandemic to 109,918.

Thirty-three new virus-related deaths were also reported in the province. Of the newly added deaths, eight occurred over the past 24 hours, 16 occurred between October 28 and November 2, seven occurred before October 28, and two others on dates unknown.

A total of 539 people are in hospital with COVID-19. Among those in hospital, 81 are in intensive care.

Montreal reported the highest number of new cases with 205 and continues to have more active cases than all other Quebec regions. However, as the Montreal Gazette pointed out, there are seven other regions of Quebec that have more active cases per 100,000 population.

Finally, Quebec has the highest rate of infection out of any province in Canada, with nearly double the rate of infection per 100,000 people than Alberta, which currently sits in second place.
