Eighth consecutive day with Covid numbers falling

Friday’s DGS Covid bulletin has registered the eighth consecutive day with numbers falling across the board: less new cases, less deaths, less hospital admissions. The number of active infections nationally is down to 38,620, with the number of recoveries in the last 24 hours more than those of the numbers newly infected (1,936 recoveries against 1,323 new infections). The number of people in hospital with serious complications as a result of Covid-19 is down to the lowest figure since July: 569 patients, of which 118 are in intensive care. No figures are given on what proportion of these patients are unvaccinated, or otherwise. The country’s Rt has reduced to below 9.
