May 17, 2022

On Monday, Quebec reported 1,611 people in hospital (a decrease of 11 from the previous day), including 51 in intensive care (a decrease of four from the previous day).
The province reported 457 new cases of COVID-19 and five deaths.
Since the start of the pandemic, there have been 1,058,066 confirmed cases, and 15,284 people have died.
The province also reported 5,331 health-care workers absent for COVID-related reasons.
91 per cent of the eligible population in the province (aged five and up) has received at least one dose of the vaccine; 55 per cent have received a third dose and 12 per cent have received a fourth dose.
*The new cases are those reported to the Quebec government only. They are believed to be an underrepresentation of the virus’s spread, given the limited availability of PCR tests and use of home testing kits.

*Quebec’s Health Ministry no longer reports COVID-19 numbers on the weekend.
