The most recent data released by the Quebec government show Quebec COVID-19 hospitalizations surpassed 2,000 for the first time since mid-August.

The Ministry of Health said Wednesday that 595 people were admitted to hospital due to COVID-19 over the last 24 hours, an increase of 207 compared to the previous day.

That brings total hospitalizations for all causes to 2,030. Health authorities have long expressed concern about pressure on the health-care system anytime hospitalizations exceed 2,000.

Quebec public health officials, including Christian Dubé, provided a COVID-19 update on Wednesday in Montreal, where they urged Quebecers to stay up-to-date on their vaccinations.

There are 52 people in intensive care units, including 19 who are sick with COVID-19, which is an increase of 13 from Tuesday.
