Regional update: A rare break in the evolution of COVID-19 cases


CARLETON:  – Today Gaspesians received a bit of a break from the progression of COVID-19, as no new cases, casualties or hospitalizations were reported by the Regional Public Health Board.

So, the number of infected individuals stands at 103, the number of casualties remains at six and the number of hospitalizations is 13, following a small statistical adjustment between the Quebec Health ministry’s numbers and regional data.

Per local service network (network linked to a hospital), the number of cases in the Bay of Chaleur area reached 63, compared to 20 for the Rocher-Percé network, nine for the Magdalen Islands network and less than five in the Côte-de-Gaspé and Haute-Gaspésie. The Public Health Board does not release specific numbers when the total number of cases is less than five within that network.
