Quebec registers 512 new cases, 7 more deaths linked to COVID-19

The results of a new study show most Canadians support a mask mandate in schools. But as Global’s Phil Carpenter reports, opposition to the measure is strongest in Quebec as well as the Prairies.

Quebec reported 512 new cases and the deaths of seven more people Wednesday amid the ongoing COVID-19 health crisis.

Health officials say hospitalizations related to the pandemic rose by seven to 298. This comes after 21 patients were admitted and 14 were discharged.

This includes 75 people in intensive care units across the province, an increase of three compared with the previous day.
