With 17 cases, better results since September in the greater Quebec City region

La Capitale-Nationale has only six new cases on Monday, unheard of since August 30.

In Chaudière-Appalaches, we have to go back to March 4 to find a more encouraging assessment than the 11 new infections reported on Monday.

However, this region has a heavy death toll. Two people succumbed to the disease in Chaudière-Appalaches.

Quebec as a whole deplores three on Monday.

The virus recedes

The positivity rates, i.e. the proportion of positive cases that emerge from the samples analyzed, continue to decrease, a sign that the disease is losing ground and infects the population less and less.

In the Capitale-Nationale, positivity remains at 0.64%. In Chaudière-Appalaches, it stands at 1.53%.

COVID’s embrace on the hospital network continues to loosen in both regions. Forty-two people are currently hospitalized with the coronavirus, three less than 24 hours ago.

Among the 20 who are in the Capitale-Nationale, only two are in intensive care.

In Chaudière-Appalaches, four people are in the intensive care unit, out of a total of 22 hospitalizations across the region.
