34 new patients have also been admitted to hospital. There are now 1,388 Covid 19 patients in the hospital.
The number of patients on intensive care has decreased by 9 to 259 patients. The figures show that the number of patients on intensive care has decreased by 5 percent per day in the past three days. 25 new deaths have also been reported.
