The two-week cumulative index of Covid-19 in Latvia increased slightly – from 1022.4 to 1028.7 per 100,000 inhabitants. The seven-day cumulative indicator increased insignificantly – from 523.2 to 524.5 per 100,000 inhabitants.
In the past 24 hours, a message was received about one death in the age group from 90 to 99 years. The deceased was not vaccinated against Covid-19.
In total, 5,909 people infected with Covid-19 have died in Latvia so far.
SPKC previously explained to the LETA agency that there may be discrepancies in the mortality data – they may be delayed by a month or a half. Information on deceased patients is also collected from the Cause of Death Register, where information is gathered on absolutely all deaths, including those from Covid-19, which, for example, have not been reported before. On the other hand, SPKC data is mainly from hospitals and nursing homes that report deaths. In addition, there are still a significant number of people for whom Covid-19 has been recorded as a contributing factor in the occurrence of death.
Since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, this disease has been laboratory-confirmed in 881,020 cases in Latvia.
According to the calculations of the LETA agency, 9,839 people have been infected with Covid-19 in the last seven days.
