MONTREAL — Quebec is reporting 69 new cases of COVID-19 today and three more deaths attributed to the novel coronavirus.

Health officials say hospitalizations dropped by three compared with the prior day, for a total of 110. The number of patients in intensive care was unchanged at 34.

The government says 88,615 vaccine doses were administered on Thursday, with 81 per cent of Quebecers over 12 having received a first dose and 30 per cent of the total population considered fully vaccinated.

Quebec has 841 active reported infections.

The province closed out June by administering 124,000 doses on Wednesday, a new daily record for vaccinations.

Health officials reported 93 new infections and four COVID-19-related deaths on Thursday, but they didn’t release that data because of the Canada Day holiday. The province has reported a total of 375,019 COVID-19 infections and 11,217 deaths linked to the virus.
