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.

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