Lower projections for the coming weeks

The portrait of the National Institute of Excellence in Health and Social Services (INESSS) for the week of May 14 to 20 reveals that, for a fifth consecutive week, the number of new reported hospital COVID cases is decreasing ( -14% compared to the previous week). This decline is observed in all age groups.

Still according to INESSS, the occupancy rate of regular beds should also decrease over the next two or three weeks. The same goes for the occupancy rate of intensive care beds.

Finally, it is interesting to note that just over half of new cases (59%) are people who have already COVID-19 when they are admitted to hospital or who contract the disease during their stay.

The new report from the World Health Organization (WHO) also reveals a downward trend since the peak observed in January 2022. During the week of May 16 to 22, 2022, more than 3.7 million cases were reported, a decrease of 3% compared to the previous week.

Also according to the WHO, the number of new weekly deaths also decreased by 11% compared to the previous week.
