April 6, 2022

Quebec reported 12 new deaths attributed to COVID-19 as the province’s hospital numbers remained on the upswing with a 61-patient jump Wednesday.

Pandemic-related hospitalizations rounded out at 1,540. This comes after 226 people were admitted in the last day and 165 were discharged.

Of those patients, 66 were in intensive care units — a drop of three compared with the previous day.

The province also recorded 3,761 new novel coronavirus cases, though this is only a partial portrait of the situation since access to PCR testing is limited.

The daily tally shows 24,249 tests were given at government-run screening sites.

Health authorities say the results of 1,726 rapid tests were declared by Quebecers in the last day. This includes 1,481 positive results.

The province doled out another 19,269 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine in past 24 hours. More than 18.7 million shots have been given over the course of the campaign.
