237 people have tested positive for coronavirus in the past 24 hours and a new death in hospital is to be deplored. Guyana now totals 3,270 cases.
The figures for the Covid crisis continue to climb in Guyana and we deplore an 11th death which occurred in a hospital environment.
237 cases detected on 862 tests carried out. It is on the island of Cayenne that they are most numerous, 98 but 34 still in Kourou and 14 in Saint-Laurent in particular. 70 analyzes are in progress.
The field hospital will be operational this weekend to accommodate non-Covid patients to free up hospital beds. At present 111 patients with Covid are listed there (8 more today) and there is a sudden acceleration in intensive care where there are now 21 people.
1166 people have recovered since the health crisis started on March 4.
