According to data compiled by the Center for Disease Prevention and Control (SPKC), 513 new cases of Covid-19 infection have been registered in Latvia in the last 24 hours and six deaths have been reported.
During this time, a total of 2,114 Covid-19 examinations were carried out, and the ratio of positive cases to those tested was 24.3%.
The two-week or 14-day cumulative index per 100,000 people fell from 277.9 to 268.9. On the other hand, the seven-day cumulative indicator was almost unchanged – it changed from 125.4 to 125.9 per 100,000 inhabitants.
It was reported that 6 people died in the last 24 hours. There was one person aged 50 to 59, 70 to 79, and 90 to 99, and three aged 80 to 89.
A total of 6,139 people infected with Kovid-19 have died in Latvia so far.
The SPKC had previously told the LETA agency that there could be inconsistencies in death data – these could be delayed by a month or a half. Information about deceased patients is also collected from the Cause of Death Register, where information is collected on absolutely all deaths, including, for example, previously unreported deaths from Covid-19. SPKC data comes mainly from hospitals and nursing homes reporting deaths. There is also a significant number of people recorded as being a factor in the death of Covid-19.
Since the beginning of the Covid-19 epidemic, this disease has been laboratory confirmed in 971,857 cases in Latvia.
According to the calculations of the LETA agency, 2 thousand 362 people have been infected with Covid-19 in the last seven days.
