Coronavirus Canada Updates: Record-breaking 34 new cases of COVID-19 confirmed in Island Health region

Quebec reported 81 new fatalities and 291 new cases of COVID-19 on Wednesday, increasing its totals to 4,794 and 51,884, respectively.

There are also now 17,098 people who have recovered, an increase of 295.

Among its now 29,992 active cases of COVID-19, there are 1,141 in hospital (down by 34) and 158 in intensive care (down by three).

The Montreal region remains the epicentre with 25,788 cases and 2,982 deaths.

Quebec’s testing numbers are reflective of its outputs two days prior. In its most recent stretch, it failed to meet its goal of 14,000, after completing 9,646 tests for COVID-19.

Among its latest cases includes a health-care worker, who’s employed at a New Brunswick long-term care facility, Manoir de la Vallée. The cluster of now 15 cases is believed to have been started after a family doctor didn’t self-isolate following a trip to Quebec himself.

So far, five residents and three staff have tested positive at Manoir de la Vallée.
