As of October 28, COVID-19 cases in Quebec have surpassed 100,000, for a total of 102,814 cases in the province since the start of the pandemic.

New regions in Quebec are continually being designated red zones, so we looked at the data to compare.

We ranked each area in terms of total cases per 100,000 people from highest to lowest.

We also compared regions by their active cases of COVID-19.
