18,695 cases of infection have been registered in the last 24 hours

An additional 18,695 new corona infections have been registered in the past 24 hours, according to figures from the Statens Serum Institut (SSI). That is a decrease compared to Thursday, when the number was 21,403 cases. 1,090 of those infected Friday have been infected before. Thus, in the last three days, there have been over 1,000 of those infected who have previously been infected with coronavirus.

The new infected have been found among 222,207 PCR samples, where they are inoculated in the throat for coronavirus. This means that the so-called positive percentage, the proportion of positive samples among tests performed, is 8.9 percent. This is the first time in five days that the positive percentage has fallen below 10.

On Wednesday and Thursday, there were infection rates of over 20,000, which was a record high. This could be because more people chose to be PCR-tested after Christmas.

In addition, 315,860 of the so-called lightning tests have been performed, where you are inoculated in the nose. However, positive answers to this do not appear in the daily infection statistics, as there is uncertainty about how correct the answers from the lightning tests are.

There are 641 inpatients, which is a decrease of 24 compared to Thursday. Of these, 73 are admitted to the intensive care unit and 49 are attached to a respirator.

In the same day, there have been 11 deaths with coronavirus, which is an increase of 2.
