Health Minister Christian Dubé said on Twitter that the 666 new infections reported on Sunday is the “best day” since Sept 23, when the province reported 687 cases.”
Hospitalizations also fell by 14 to 686 with 119 patients in intensive care, which is one less than the day before.
Dubé warned Quebecers against feeling a false sense of security given the threat of new, potentially more infectious COVID-19 variants.
Quebec has reported 23 confirmed cases involving variants of concern, as well as 329 presumptive cases under investigation.
