Quebec falls short of 28-day goal to beat second wave

Quebec reported 963 new cases of COVID-19 and 19 more deaths on Tuesday, one day after Premier Francois Legault extended restrictions in regions under the province’s highest red-alert level to Nov. 23. Although the number of new cases of the virus has stabilized over the course of the much-talked-about “28 day challenge”, the premier said that numbers need to drop significantly before restrictions can be eased.
The number of patients in hospital declined by 16 across the province to 527, and the number of intensive care patients dropped by two to 91.
Quebec has reported a total of 101,885 COVID-19 cases and 6,172 deaths linked to the virus since the beginning of the pandemic.
In the Estrie Region 36 new cases were reported, 22 of which were in the la Pommeraie and Haute-Yamaska areas. The region reported no new deaths although the number of hospitalisations increased by two, to 13. The number of people in intensive care, meanwhile, dropped by one, to three.
