Quebec is reporting another 14 deaths attributed to the novel coronavirus, for a total of 5,541.
Authorities said today eight of the deaths occurred in the past 24 hours, while six occurred before June 24.
The province is also reporting 69 additional COVID-19 cases, for a total of 55,593, including 25,034 cases that are considered recovered.
Eleven fewer patients are in hospital with the disease, for a total of 411 patients, including 32 in intensive case, a reduction of one.
Authorities conducted 8,703 COVID-19 tests on June 30 – the last day for which testing data is available – which remains below the government’s 14,000 daily testing target.
Despite the continued downward trend in infections and deaths, Quebec remains by far the province hardest-hit by the virus.
