MONTREAL _ Quebec is reporting more than 180 cases of COVID-19 for the second consecutive day.

Health officials said today there were 184 new confirmed COVID-19 infections.

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

Quebec has now reported a total of 63,117 cases of COVID-19 and 5,767 deaths linked to the virus.

The total number of deaths remained stable, however, because one death previously added to the tally was found to be unrelated to the pandemic.

Hospitalizations increased by two compared with the prior day, to 102, while the number of intensive-care patients decreased by two, for a total of 18.
