Health Ministry confirms COVID death; number of serious cases fall

Serious COVID cases fall to 37 as the Health Ministry releases updated coronavirus figures.

The number of patients in serious condition stood at 46 earlier today, when the ministry rejected reports it was inflating the stat.

According to the ministry’s website, the death toll rose by one to 6,430. Hospitals reported two coronavirus deaths earlier today, the first fatalities in over two weeks. It isn’t immediately clear what accounts for the discrepancy.

There have been 326 new cases confirmed since midnight, bringing the number of infections since the pandemic began to 844,905.

Today’s positivity rate is so far 0.7 percent, identical to the previous few days.
