MONTREAL — Quebec reported 532 new COVID-19 cases on Sunday, along with four more deaths related to the virus.

In a news release Sunday, health officials said hospitalizations fell by six to 303, while the number of patients in intensive care dropped by two to 76.

The seven-day average of cases is 562.

Of the latest reported infections, 341 were among people who were either unvaccinated or who had only received a first dose within the past two weeks.

The province said it vaccinated 11,403 people on Saturday, including more than 7,553 second doses.

The province's public health institute said about 90 per cent of Quebecers aged 12 and older have received at least one dose, while 86 per cent are considered fully vaccinated with two shots.
