Quebec reports 219 new cases – biggest jump since June

Quebec has registered 219 new cases of COVID-19, bringing the total to 64,463, the provincial government announced this morning.

This is the biggest one-day increase since early June.

This is the third time in a week that Quebec has reported more than 200 cases.

The increase comes as the province ramps up screening. Quebec carried out a record number of tests on Wednesday – more than 26,000, the highest since September 3.

Three new deaths were reported but two were removed from the tally. The death toll is now 5,774.

Hospitalizations continue to increase.
