“With 3,712 cases throughout the country, the sixth consecutive week of decrease of patients with Covid-19 is registered, marking the lowest number of infections this year,” said the head, who maintained the lowest fatality rate in the region (0.7 percent).

In his weekly report, Auza added that the nine departments again registered a decrease in the number of infected people compared to the previous seven days.

According to the report, Santa Cruz presented 2,55 new SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus cases, equivalent to a 33 percentage point reduction; Beni registered 50 (68 percent), Pando 53 (49 units out of 100); and Cochabamba 608 (40 percent).

The downward trend was also maintained in Chuquisaca, with 128 cases (a 35 percent reduction); the 82 cases in Tarija represented a 62 percent reduction and the 544 cases in La Paz represented a 47 percent reduction.

Likewise, by reporting 130 new cases, Potosi achieved a 38 percent decrease and Oruro reduced by 40 percent with the 62 reported infections.

Auza commented that despite the fact that the number of patients identified in this fourth wave of the Covid-19 pandemic is much higher than in previous waves, the government’s plan to protect the lives of the population is having good results.

The head of Bolivia’s national health system insisted that the population should take biosecurity measures during the remaining two days of Carnival to continue the downward trend in Covid-19 cases.
