The Ministry of Health has registered 42,272 new infections since Friday, which represents a notable decrease compared to the data for that day last week, when 52,112 positives were reported, while the last report had collected 58,839. Today's figure is the lowest since April 12, when fewer than 35,000 positives were reported. In total, since the start of the pandemic, the health authorities have confirmed 12,280,345.
The incidence of coronavirus in those over 60 years of age and at 14 days stands at 800.47 points per 100,000 inhabitants, which represents a decrease to the figures for early May. This indicator last Friday had stood at 848.62 positives per 100,000 inhabitants.
As for mortality, the deceased notified this Tuesday also represent a setback compared to those that Health recorded in recent weeks. Since Friday, communities have reported 158 deaths from coronavirus, while 305 had been reported the previous Friday, although the figure is not comparable because it does not include the same number of days. In any case, this is the lowest number of deaths since the reporting system of the Ministry of Health changed, which went from reporting daily to only twice a week. In total, since the start of the pandemic, a total of 106,105 people have died.
The situation in hospitals remains more or less stable, although with an upward trend. In intensive care there are 363 patients, one less than on Friday, but since that day those hospitalized in general beds have increased by almost 200. In percentage terms, the occupation right now is 6.12% nationwide, by 5 .94% of Friday.
