Quebec registered 35 new deaths and a nine-patient decrease Tuesday amid the ongoing COVID-19 health crisis.

Pandemic-related hospitalizations stood at 1,901 after 99 people were admitted and 108 were discharged in the last day.

Intensive care unit cases linked to the disease remained unchanged at 66.

The province also reported 772 new cases of the novel coronavirus. The daily tally isn’t representative of the current situation since it is based on PCR screening, which remains off limits to most of the population.
