Quebec resumes daily COVID-19 updates; reports 72 new cases, seven deaths .
MONTREAL — Quebec has resumed releasing daily COVID-19 data following a widely criticized three-day interruption. The province is reporting 72 new cases of the novel coronavirus compared with the prior day, for a total of 55,390. Authorities also report five additional deaths from COVID-19 within the past 24 hours, and two deaths that occurred before June 21, for a total of 5,485. Last week, public health authorities said they would end daily COVID-19 updates in favour of a weekly summary, but reversed that decision after public outcry.
