There are no new Covid-19 victims in the past day.
The proportion of positive tests in the past day has reached 9.2%.
The SPCC has previously explained that this figure is considered important in the European Union, as above 4%, the spread of the disease is considered to be rapid and uncontrolled.
A total of 13,120 persons became ill in Latvia and 1,635 recovered.
It has already been reported that on Friday, the largest number of new cases of Covid-19 was detected in Latvia in one day – 642 sick. Seven people with this infection have died.
In the opinion of the SPKC, the number of positive cases of Covid-19 on Friday cannot be assessed as a separate trend and the situation should be assessed at least during the last seven days. The SPKC estimates that the proportion of positive tests in the last seven days is 6.6%, compared to 5.8% a week ago, while the intensity of the increase in morbidity has decreased over the last seven days.
“But still every second patient cannot tell where they are infected – they have been at work, at home, on public transport, they have met relatives,” notes SPKC,
“Epidemiologists call for reduced contacts, but to keep a distance of two meters if necessary.
Agree with the employer on telework, build your own social “bubble”, assessing all the risks. “
