Out of 4,634 tests carried out in the past 24 hours, 11.6% were positive. The 14-day cumulative incidence rate per 100,000 of the population rose from 400.8 Wednesday to 420.2 Thursday; however, SPKC said that due to a 'technical error' the case count between March 7 and April 19 has to be supplemented by 2,431, which also impacts the cumulative morbidity. The Thursday figure of 420 has been aligned with the corrected data. According to the corrected data, Wednesday's rate was 443.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, 821,602 Covid-19 cases have now been recorded among Latvia's 1.9 million population.
