Quebec reported 1,386 new cases of COVID-19 on Tuesday, as daily case counts continue to trend downwards.

Unfortunately, the province also reported 55 new deaths. Among those 55 deaths, 16 occurred in the last 24 hours.

“Even if the drop in the number of cases is encouraging, we must remain cautious because the positivity rate remains high,” Health Minister Christian Dubé said via Twitter, noting the number of tests was low on the weekend.

Montreal Island was once again hit the hardest with 479 of today’s cases and 19 of the deaths.

Following Montreal is Monteregie with 268 new cases, for a total of 35,049. Next is Quebec City (127 new, 20,576 total), Laval (125 new, 20,666 total), and the Laurentides (97 new, 13,405 total).

Since the beginning of the pandemic, Quebec has reported 245,734 cases and 9,142 deaths linked to COVID-19.

A total of 217,575 who have contracted the disease have since recovered.
