Quebec and Ontario have announced, to the two of them, 20 additional deaths related to the COVID-19 Sunday, which makes it the lowest number recorded in nearly three months of anti-coronavirus.
By mid-day, Canada had a total of 8430 deaths of patients who contracted the disease. In addition, 267 positive tests had been identified, bringing the number of people infected to date to 101 286.
Unless a surprise from the provinces of the West, Canada was on track for the day with the lowest mortality rates for nearly three months. In effect, it is necessary to go back to the 1st April last, when 10 deaths had been announced across the country, to find a day that is less costly in human lives.
In Quebec, six families have learned of the death of a loved one due to the virus in the last hours. These deaths are in addition three deaths recorded prior to June 13, said the public Health.
It is the second-best balance sheet, in terms of mortality, in the Beautiful Province since the beginning of the month of April.
In addition, 92 new patients were identified in Québec, while the number of hospitalizations has slightly decreased.
Stabilization in Ontario
For its part, the province’s most populous country has reported 175 new cases of COVID-19, and 11 additional deaths.
In doing so, Ontario is back under the bar of 200 infections per day, a cap that she had crossed on Saturday for the first time since June 13.
The number of deaths has also come down in line with the figures released in the last few days, after a peak of 31 deaths announced Saturday.
For their part, the four eastern provinces of the country have announced no new cases Sunday.
