Canada reported 333 new cases of the novel coronavirus on Monday, including 29 more deaths.

The new numbers — which are tallied from provincial and federal health authorities — bring the country’s total cases and deaths to 99,131, and 8,175, respectively.

Monday’s cases also follows what looks to be a downward trend in day-to-day reported cases and deaths across the country. New cases of COVID-19 across Canada have stayed within the 300-figure range over the last three days.

Both Ontario and Quebec once again reported the highest number of new COVID-19 cases.

Coronavirus cases in Ontario reached a total of 32,370 after an additional 181 cases on Monday. Quebec, on the other hand, remains Canada’s virus hotspot with a total of 54,054 cases following Monday’s announcement of 102 new infections.
