Quebec reports 180 new COVID-19 cases, three further deaths linked to virus (Details)


MONTREAL—Quebec health officials are reporting 180 new cases of COVID-19.

The province also announced three additional deaths linked to the disease from earlier in the month and withdrew two other deaths after investigations determined they weren’t caused by COVID-19.

The province has now reported 64,056 confirmed cases and 5,771 deaths.

No deaths were reported in the past 24 hours, but the number of hospitalizations increased by eight to 113, while intensive care cases decreased by one to 14.

Meanwhile, one of the three Quebec cabinet ministers self-isolating after being in the presence of a local mayor who contracted the disease says he’s tested negative.

Transport Minister François Bonnardel says on social media that he’s relieved with the result, but will remain in preventive isolation for another week.
