Quebec is reporting 279 new cases of COVID-19 today, bringing the total to 64,986 cases since the pandemic began.

The province says one additional death attributed to the novel coronavirus was also recorded in the past 24 hours.

The total number of deaths in Quebec since the start of the pandemic remains at 5,780, however, because health officials say they mistakenly attributed a previous death to the virus.

Of those, 19 people were in intensive care — an increase of three from the previous day.
