MONTREAL — Quebec is reporting 9,206 new COVID-19 cases, and four more deaths.

The province's open data portal says Christmas Day saw 825 fewer cases than Friday.

Quebec has reported 530,002 positive cases since the start of the pandemic.

There have been a total of 11,664 deaths related to COVID-19.

Officials have said in recent days the daily numbers are likely an underestimation because the province's testing centres are overwhelmed and can't keep up with demand.

Details on COVID-19-related hospitalizations and vaccinations will be released next week as the provincial government said it won't be sharing daily numbers during the holidays.
