Quebec health authorities added 1,502 new cases of COVID-19 on Wednesday, making it the fourth straight day cases were below 2000. Unfortunately, 66 new deaths were reported, including 10 over the past 24 hours.

Montreal Island accounted for 629 of today’s cases and 17 of the deaths.

The number of COVID-19 cases in the province is nearing a grim new milestone as total cases are nearing a quarter million. As it stands, Quebec has reported 247,236 cases and 9,208 deaths linked to COVID-19.

A total of 219,592 who have contracted the disease have since recovered.

There are currently 1,467 people hospitalized across the province because of the virus. Intensive care numbers increased by four, for a total of 216.

Unfortunately, Quebec also lags other provinces in vaccinations. The province has fallen behind other provinces in the percentage of doses administered and per-capita doses administered.

As of Tuesday, Quebec administered 10,207 vaccine doses, bringing the total to 174,260. That includes 41,685 doses administered in Montreal.

Over the past week, just under 67,000 people were vaccinated.
