The accumulated number of patients —who managed to recover from the new coronavirus— has reached 185,852 as of Friday
, which means an increase of 3,755 compared to the previous figures. Thus, those citizens were discharged to return home.
Given these results, there are seven consecutive days in which the number of recoveries is higher than that of new contagions.
It also confirms that —although the spread of the new coronavirus continues— it is increasing on a smaller scale due to the care taken by citizens.
Thus, in the last seven days, 26,046 people overcame the disease. This brought happiness to their families, pride to the professionals at various health care establishments, and strength to Peru.
Of that number, 1,210 are in ICU beds with mechanical ventilation, 10 less than the previous day, when there was an increase (+8).
It must be noted 1,445,370 samples tested negative for COVID-19, out of a total 1,740,969 samples taken so far in Peru.
