26 new Covid cases in Latvia on Monday

On Monday, August 2, Latvia reported 26 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 138,925. 

Of 3,799 tests carried out in the past 24 hours, 0.7% were positive. Monday's total is usually the lowest of the week in terms of absolute numbers due to a smaller number of tests being carried out on Sundays.

The 14-day cumulative infection rate per 100,000 inhabitants remained unchanged from Sunday to Monday at 39.1.

No Covid-related deaths were confirmed, so the death toll since the start of the pandemic remains at 2,556.

According to Monday's figures from the National Health Service, there are currently 47 patients being treated for Covid-19 symptoms in Latvia's hospitals of which 8 are classed as having serious symptoms.
