The total Thursday data of Covid patients and deaths is yet to be released.
Among the 20 dead Covid-19 sufferers at RAKUS, one was 40 years old, another 50 years old.
At RAKUS, which is the biggest 'Covid-hospital' in Latvia, emergency unit beds have now been placed in the garage where Emergency Medical Service vehicles were parked previously. A new department is also being created that will allow patients to start treatment immediately.
This week, the alarm about Covid-19 mortality was also raised by Daugavpils Regional Hospital, where six to ten Covid-19 patients, mostly seniors, die each day, according to the head of the hospital.
