Meanwhile, the number of COVID-19 cases rose to 39,316 with 514 new additions.

There are currently 10,769 patients under treatment at hospitals across the country after 84 fresh admissions.

“The figures for the last few days are in line with the impression that the measures are working,” the RVIM said in its latest update.

“The number of new hospital admissions reported per day is still decreasing. The same applies to the number of reported deaths.”

After first appearing in China last December, the COVID-19 virus has spread to at least 186 countries and regions.
