The number of daily corona cases is the lowest in 13 days

On Sunday, there is the lowest number of confirmed corona cases in 13 days.

According to figures from the Statens Serum Institut, an additional 850 cases of infection have been registered since Saturday’s inventory.

It is the lowest since Monday, November 9, when there were 771 new cases.

This is somewhat below the level over the past five days, where there have been more than 1,200 new cases of infection every day.

However, it is related to the number of samples that have been answered.

Since the last update on Saturday, there have been responses to 58,018 samples. In the previous four days, more than 70,000 tests have been answered every day.

On Sunday, 1.47 percent of the test results are positive for covid-19. It is slightly below the level for the rest of the week, where the share has fluctuated between 1.55 and 1.77 percent.

The development thus looks fairly stable. This is the assessment of Svend Ellermann-Eriksen, who is chief physician in the department of clinical microbiology at Aarhus University Hospital.

– It is roughly equivalent to what we have seen the last weekends – that we get a little lower numbers at the weekend.

– So immediately it seems that we are at a fairly stable level around 1000 new cases, he says.

He therefore does not believe that Sunday’s figures give rise to the great cheers.

A further 28 people with covid-19 have been admitted since the most recent census. The total number of inpatients increases by 17 to 254, as there have also been discharges.

Svend Ellermann-Eriksen estimates that the health service can currently keep up with the corona situation.

– It is loaded, but not heavily loaded. Fortunately, there is still a long way to go. But it can be felt in the hospitals, says the chief doctor.

There have also been three deaths among people infected with covid-19. This brings the total death toll among corona victims in Denmark to 784 during the epidemic.
