COVID-19: further increase in hospitalizations
The government's daily report shows an increase in hospitalizations and intensive care admissions.
Quebec reports an increase of 28 hospitalizations, for a total of 1,062 people hospitalized due to COVID-19 in Quebec. In terms of admissions to intensive care, an increase of seven people is reported, for a total of 57 people currently admitted to these units.
Quebec also deplores fourteen new deaths. The human toll from the COVID-19 pandemic has now reached 14 288 in the province.
Regarding new infections, an increase is also reported with 2295 new cases in the province. However, it should be noted that the number of cases listed is not representative of the current situation, since access to screening centers is reserved for priority clienteles.
An increase in future hospitalizations
According to the latest projections from the National Institute of Excellence in Health and Social Services (INESSS), there should be an increase in hospitalizations in Quebec in the next two weeks. The occupancy of regular beds occupied by COVID patients should be between levels 2 and 3 defined by the Ministry of Health and Social Services (MSSS).
As for the occupation of intensive care beds, INESSS expects a relative stabilization.
The institute would like to point out, however, that many people are hospitalized for a reason other than COVID, but are then declared positive during their stay. This proportion could represent a little more than half of regular beds and about a third of intensive care beds.
