The number of patients admitted to hospital and intensive care in Quebec listing seven additional deaths related to COVID-19 on Monday continues to decline, while the vaccine continues to lose momentum.
Released at 11:01 p.m.
All seven of these new deaths have the lowest impact on the daily average Govt death rate, which stands at 17 on Monday. Over a one-week period this trend has slowed to 24%.
In the health network, enrollment in ten hospitals declined on Monday, translating to 59 new inputs and 69 discharges. To date, 1,446 Govt patients are still hospitalized, 94 of whom are in intensive care, and the program has reduced four cases in 24 hours (7 inputs, 11 outputs).
As a sign that this downward trend should continue, the National Institutes of Health and Social Services (INESSS) predicted last week that the number of hospital admissions to COVID would reach 1,200 occupied beds by the end of this year.
There are also 845 new cases of Covid-19, bringing the weekly average to 1,345, which follows a downward trend of approximately 24% over a one-week period. However, it should be noted that the limitations imposed on screening have already reduced the data related to infections to very few representatives for a few weeks.
Earlier on Saturday, Public Health conducted 12,907 screening tests, a relatively consistent number compared to the average. The provincial positive rate is currently 7.2%. The number of active eruptions also dropped from 691 to 684.
So far, more than 97,350 rapid tests on the Legault government site have been “self-reported”, most of which, with approximately 75,900, had a positive diagnosis of COVID-19.
On the vaccination side, the Quebec campaign continues to decline rapidly. As of Saturday, just 8,375 additional vaccines had been given, and 73 vaccines given before February 24 have not yet been officially calculated. In total, 6274 third doses, 1635 second doses, and 288 first doses were given.
Currently, about 87% of Quebec’s population has received at least one dose, and about 82.5% have now received two doses. The proportion of cubes receiving their booster dose has not yet reached the 50% mark, but this should be done in the coming days.
Quebec currently vaccines an average of 13,636 people a day. Since the outbreak, more than 18.7 million doses have been received by cubes, including people who have been vaccinated outside the province.
