Maharashtra's Covid-19 case count on Thursday crossed 18 lakh to reach 18,02,365 as 6,406 new infections came to light, a health official said.

Quebec has reported 135,430 COVID-19 infections and 6,915 deaths linked to the virus since the start of the pandemic.

Public health director Dr. Horacio Arruda said he is sending two doctors from his agency to the region to help with epidemiological investigations and to manage the outbreaks.

He said the government needs to do a better job of explaining to older people what activities are risky and how much risk those activities involve. "We didn't want to find ourselves in a situation where we were using a test that wasn't at the right place, at the right time, for the right people".

Quebec is reporting 1,269 new COVID-19 infections and 38 more deaths linked to the novel coronavirus, including nine that occurred in the past 24 hours. "Each effort to diminish contacts will reduce the number of cases". The state has so far conducted 1,05,47,333 tests.

The percentage of COVID-19 cases in Quebec among people over the age of 70 is increasing, but the number is significantly below what was reported during the peak of the pandemic's first wave. They said the number of people in hospital rose by 20 from a day earlier, to 675, and 90 of those people were in intensive care - a decrease of three.

Data from Quebec's national public health institute indicates 18.4 per cent of Quebecers with active COVID-19 cases since November 22 were over the age of 70, up from 14.9 per cent the previous week.

Those are among the conclusions of a new report from the Institut national d'excellence en santé et en services sociaux.

The total number of recoveries is now 119,727 or 87 per cent of the total positive cases.
