    Record-high 250 Covid-19 cases registered in Latvia on Thursday

    RIGA, Oct 23 (LETA) - Record-high 250 new Covid-19 cases were registered in Latvia on Thursday, the Center for Disease Prevention and Control (CDC) said today.

    One person in the 55-60 age group died of the coronavirus.

    5,726 Covid-19 tests were carried out on Thursday. The share of positive tests was 4.4 percent in the past 24 hours - the highest percentage to date. The CDC explained earlier that in the European Union this indicator is considered important because when this figure rises above 3 percent, the spread of the disease is considered to be rapid and uncontrolled.

    So far, 4,208 people in Latvia have tested positive for Covid-19, and 1,357 of them have recovered from the coronavirus disease.

    In total, 413,905 Covid-19 tests have been carried out in Latvia so far.

    According to the National Health Service's data, seventeen Covid-19 patients were hospitalized yesterday. At the moment, there are 113 patients treated for Covid-19 in hospitals, including 103 patients with symptoms of medium severity and ten with severe symptoms. Eight patients were discharged from hospitals yesterday. The total number of Covid-19 patients discharged from hospitals has increased to 312, but this figure includes both recovered and dead patients.
