Regional update: the week begins with no new cases


The breakdown of the 172 cases by health region (containing a hospital) is as follows: 

  • Bay of Chaleur sector – 129 (stable)
  • Rocher-Percé sector – 27 (stable)
  • Magdalen Islands – 9 (stable)
  • Côte-de-Gaspé – 5 (stable)
  • Haute-Gaspésie – less than 5 (stable)

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: 

  • 3013  – deaths (an increase of 85)
  • 38,469 – positive cases (an increase of 748)
  • 1838 – total hospitalizations (an increase of 7)
  • 193  – people in intensive care (a decrease of 6)
