Quebec reported 530 new COVID-19 cases on Monday, of which 419 were identified in people who were not fully vaccinated.
The additional cases brought the province’s seven-day moving average of new cases to 648, its highest level since mid-May.
A total of 393,337 infections have been confirmed in the province since the first report in February 2020.
Hospital stays and intensive care admissions continue to rise, reaching levels last seen more than two months ago when the province was on the brink of the third wave.
The number of hospital admissions rose by 11 to 160, almost three times the number of patients hospitalized for COVID-19 a month ago.
Of those patients, 64 are in intensive care – an increase of eight and the biggest one-day jump since April.
Information from the Ministry of Health shows that 20 of the 23 people newly admitted to hospital in the last 24 hours were not fully vaccinated.
