  • 265 Coronavirus related deaths have been reported to the National Institute of Public Health (NIPH). The age group with the most deaths is people who are between 80-89 years old, and 53 percent of all deaths are men. FHI emphasizes that it is not always possible to know whether the patient has died of or with Covid-19.
  • 12,431 people have been diagnosed with the Coronavirus since February, the Infectious Diseases Notification System (MSIS) shows on Wednesday.
  • The average age of those who have been diagnosed with infection was 42 years on Tuesday. There are 6,351 men who have been diagnosed with the infection, and 6,080 women.
  • The number of infections, or the number of reproductions, says something about how many an infected person spreads further. From 1 August, this is estimated at 0.72. However, the margin of error is large, from 0.06 to 1.28. The estimated probability that the infection rate from 1 August is greater than 1.0 is 19 percent, according to FHI.
