CARLETON – For the third consecutive day there are no new COVID-19 cases in the Gaspé Peninsula and Magdalen Islands. The total number of infected individuals is stable at 169. There are also no new deaths to report.

The breakdown of the 169 cases by health region (containing a hospital) is as follows:
- Bay of Chaleur sector – 128
- Rocher-Percé sector – 26
- Magdalen Islands – 8
- Côte-de-Gaspé – 5
- Haute-Gaspésie – less than 5
Note: The Public Health Board does not release numbers in a sector if the number of cases is less than five. The total of confirmed cases in a health region does not always correspond to the sum of cases in that health region (RLS) due to unknown values, data entry errors or transfers between regions. The total in one health region won’t necessarily correspond with the total for the outbreaks in that health region, since some cases are located (reside) in other health regions.
The totals for the province are as follows:
- 2280 deaths (an increase of 75)
- 32,623 positive cases (an increase of 758)
- 1772 total hospitalizations (an increase of 18)
- 218 people in intensive care (stable)
