Quebec now has seven confirmed cases of COVID-19, with 91 others under investigation, the government announced Tuesday.
It is not known if the new cases come from travellers or community transmission.
The Public Health Ministry said the cases under investigation has climbed because the number of countries where someone is at risk of contracting the virus has increased.
Those under investigation who are healthy enough are being told to go home and engage in self-isolation.
The government said Tuesday that Quebec’s fourth confirmed patient had taken the Montreal Metro and buses on the city’s South Shore on Feb. 24 and March 6.
Other confirmed cases in the province came from travellers who had visited Iran, India and France.
Public health said the risk of transmission in Quebec remains low despite the new cases.
