The World Health Organization has officially declared COVID-19 a pandemic.
For now, the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) is under control in Québec, but the present weeks are critical. Community transmission of the virus now extends to all regions of Québec. The Government is taking all the necessary measures to contain the contagion as much as possible.
The latest data of the evolution of COVID-19 over the past 24 hours in Québec reveal:
- 1,464 new cases, bringing the total number of people infected to 136,894.
- The data also report 32 new deaths, for a total of 6,947. Among these 32 deaths, 8 have occurred in the last 24 hours, 19 have occurred between November 19 and November 24 and 5 have occurred before November 19.
- The number of hospitalizations increased by 20 compared to the previous day, for a cumulative total of 675. Among these, the number of people in intensive care decreased by 3, for a total of 90.
- The samples conducted on November 24 amount to 33,023 for a total of 3,783,890.
- Content of note no. 1
Note that the majority of data are presented according to the day they were entered. They are extracted at 4 p.m. at the date shown and cover the preceding 24 hours. However, the availability of the data on samples involves an additional delay of 24 hours and these correspond to the number of samples taken on the date shown.
- Content of note no. 2
It should also be noted that the data prior to those of the last 24 hours presented in the column Deaths have been adjusted according to the actual dates of death. This explains the variation of some data compared to those presented in previous press releases. The daily death toll is influenced by the time required for the physician to report the death, the time required to complete the investigation to confirm that the death was attributable to COVID-19, and the entry into the system.

2: Cumulative data. Source: Infocentre de santé publique (LSPQ and supraregional laboratories), November 25, 2020, 4 p.m. The method for calculating negative cases has been revised to exclude people who have received one or more negative results in additional screening tests during the same episode of infection. An episode of infection corresponds to the period of 90 days following a first positive test.

Distribution of the number of daily deaths related to the COVID-19 according to their living environment
The reported number of deaths for the most recent days may be underestimated due to a delay in reporting the death or in the data input.

Note: A total of 56 deaths does not appear on the graph because the date of death is missing. The moving average is calculated over a period of 7 days and corresponds to the average number of deaths of the selected day, the previous 3 days and the following 3 days. It provides an overview of the trend.

In Canada, COVID-19 is a serious health threat, and the situation is evolving daily. The risk will vary between and within communities, but given the increasing number of cases in Canada, the risk to Canadians is considered high. You can find information about the outbreak in the Current situation section on the Government of Canada’s site.
Scenarios for the evolution of COVID-19
At a time when the authorities are considering a gradual resumption of economic, social and clinical activities, the experts looked into the impacts it could have on the trajectory of the pandemic and on the resources to cope with it.
