Montreal reports eight new COVID-19 deaths, 108 new cases

MONTREAL — Montreal is reporting only eight new deaths from COVID-19, a drastic drop from the 179 new deaths reported by the city’s public health officials on Sunday.

The city is now counting a total of 2,927 deaths and 25,545 COVID-19 cases overall — which means 108 new cases on Monday, almost half the 210 reported the day before.

Health officials clarified over the weekend that the spike in new deaths reported Sunday was due to a technical problem entering data, and that 14 more people had died in the 24 preceding hours.

Anyone who is experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, including fever, dry cough, trouble breathing and a loss of smell or taste, can visit a testing clinic with or without an appointment.
