Quebec reported 408 new COVID-19 cases on Sunday, bringing the total to 51,059.

In addition to 37 deaths during the past 24 hours, the Quebec health department reported 165 deaths from previous days that had not been counted “due to a data transmission problem.”

Provincial health officials noted the 165 deaths that had not initially been counted “came mainly from the Montreal region.”

With a total of 202 more fatalities, the death toll in Quebec increased to 4,641.

Sunday’s numbers came on the eve of another phase of deconfinement plans previously announced by the Legault government.

As of Monday, Quebec businesses and services allowed to reopen include daycare centres in the Greater Montreal area, shopping malls outside the Greater Montreal area, private health services (dentistry, optometry and physiotherapy) and hair and beauty salons outside the Greater Montreal and Joliette areas.
