Take note – story published 2 years ago

On Monday, May 31, Latvia recorded 101 new cases of Covid-19 infection, according to the Disease Prevention and Control Center (SPKC).

The total number of cases detected since the start of the pandemic now stands at 133,199.  

Of 3,297 tests carried out in the past 24 hours, 3.1 % were positive, down on the 4.1% rate of Sunday and consistent with the roughly 3% rate of the last week. Monday's case total is usually the lowest of the week in absolute numbers as Sundays generally see the smallest number of tests carried out each week.

Continuing the encouraging trend of the last week, the 14-day cumulative infection rate per 100,000 inhabitants fell yet again, though only slightly, from 268 Sunday to 266 Monday.

Unfortunately six deaths have been registered Monday, the death toll since the start of the pandemic now reaching at 2,376.

Meanwhile in Estonia 59 new cases of coronavirus were recorded May 31, and in Lithuania 181 cases were logged.
