Hospitalizations continued to fall in Quebec as the province reported 42 new pandemic-related deaths Thursday.
There was a decrease of 93 for a total of 2,637 hospitalizations linked to COVID-19. Of them, 191 people were in intensive care, a drop of 13 compared with the previous day.
Health officials say 193 patients were admitted to hospital while 286 left over the past 24-hour period.
Quebec also recorded 3,592 new novel coronavirus cases as part of its daily tally. The government says this count is not representative of the situation since screening facilities are limited to priority groups.

The boxes of five tests will be delivered to schools in the coming days so that teens and adults who have developed symptoms of COVID-19 can test themselves at home.
Prior to the move, educational institutions were only able to administer rapid tests on site — and not send packs home with students.
The Health Ministry says it will also give out more boxes of rapid tests in pre-schools and elementary schools at the end of February.
