In the Estrie Region 50 new cases were recorded on Monday alongside three new deaths; one at the Granby Hospital, one at the Les Bâtisseurs private seniors’ residence in Cowansville, and one at the Place Primevère residence in Waterloo. The total number of COVID-19 infections in the region since the start of the pandemic is now 10,343 with 619 cases currently active. Local hospitalizations outside of intensive care decreased to 58, five of whom are now considered recovered, but intensive care hospitalizations increased by two to 13.
Due to the well-publicized supply issues from Pfizer, progress in the province’s vaccination campaign has slowed significantly, with only 1,960 doses administered across Quebec as of Monday afternoon. So far 220,715 doses have been administered across the province, 9,962 of which were in the Estrie.
