After having experienced a significant drop in COVID-19 cases the day before, the results of the Capitale-Nationale observed a slight increase, once again passing above the 100 cases mark with 125 new people infected.

There is also an additional death, bringing the total to 247 lives lost by the pandemic in the region.
In addition, 91 people are hospitalized in the territory, including eight in intensive care.
Further south, Chaudière-Appalaches Public Health reports 75 new carriers of the virus, while 54 individuals are being treated for complications related to the pandemic.
There are currently 50 active hatching environments in the territory.
Across the province, the recorded cases decreased for a fourth consecutive day. This time around, an increase of 815 new patients is reported.
Quebec’s regional toll could perhaps see a jump in cases on Wednesday. According to our information, a major outbreak was detected at the Du Fargy accommodation center, in Beauport.
The newspaper got hold of an email from the administration of the retirement home indicating that no less than 22 cases were identified on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th floors.
The situation has potentially worsened since then given that the email was sent out on Sunday morning.
“All residents of the 4th floor were screened yesterday [samedi]. There will be massive screening on a strategic frequency to be determined by Public Health. […] We have a reduction in resources, and all the employees present on site are with the residents, ”says one in the letter. “A red zone mission team is here to help the CH Fargy team,” they add.
Public Health is expected to confirm the outbreak on Wednesday.
Few statements of offense
The Sûreté du Québec (SQ) also held several awareness dams across the province last week.
The vast majority of Quebecers seem to comply with the government’s new restrictions on public health since only 12 tickets were issued, while 13,366 motorists were encountered.
Note, however, that the provincial police force had to issue 2,661 warnings during the week concerning these same directives.
