The numbers of new infections have grown rapidly this past week, setting a new record on three days – Thursday (1,776), Saturday (1,830), and today.

Also of great concern is the number of hospitalizations, also reaching record levels this Tuesday: 789 people are in hospital with covid-19, of which 340 are in intensive care.

As for deaths associated with covid-18, this Tuesday 18 new deaths were reported. With this, the accumulated total is 3,186 deaths: 1,204 women and 1,982 men, with an age range of two to 103 years.

Minister Salas called for the entire population to take extreme care of itself.

The country is headed into unknown territory, never has there been a near collapse of medical services.

For its part, the Comisión Nacional de Emergencias (CNE) warns of an increase of cantons elevated to “orange” from “yellow” alert the last two weeks.
