COVID-19: Peru registered 6,043 new infections and 147 deaths in the last 24 hours

The COVID-19 pandemic is still present in our country, especially now that we are going through a third wave of infections due to the presence of the omicron variant. According to Situation Room of Ministry of Health (Minsa) during the last 24 hours, 6,043 new infections were registered and 147 compatriots lost their lives due to the coronavirus. During that period of time, 55,542 people were tested nationwide.

The number of people hospitalized amounts to 6,422 due to the virus that unleashed this pandemic. Of these, 1,339 are hospitalized in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) being treated with mechanical ventilation. More than 3 million people have complied with home isolation since the start of the pandemic, according to the Ministry of Health.

Since March 2020, more than 25 million Peruvians have been tested for coronavirus, of which 3,239,538 were confirmed cases. 205,834 is the total number, so far, of compatriots who have died due to COVID-19 since the virus was first registered in national territory.

In order to stop contagion, the government maintains the recommendation to respect the physical distance of at least one meter between people. It urges the population to constantly wash their hands, wear masks that are preferably KN95.

“The Ministry of Health is analyzing the registration systems in order to update the information,” reads the daily report published by the Minsa, since the numbers they share correspond only to what was collected in the last 24 hours and does not really reflect the number of deaths for specific days.

The number of deaths mentioned by the situational room only corresponds to the last 24 hours. If you subtract the absolute number of total deaths for the day in question minus the previous day, the result will be higher than the last 24 hours. This difference is the result of the fact that the previous days the figures have been updated“said the engineer. Juan Carbajal to this medium.

In addition, he stressed that, although the numbers do not sound alarming for now, there would come a day when we would be surprised with a high figure that had already been recorded previously by the open data of the minsa. Open data is a platform in which each entity of the Ministry of Health notifies and confirms the death certificate to determine if the death was due to Covid or another cause.. Finally, the information is recorded in the National Information System of Deaths (Sinadef)”, he added.

In other words, once the Situational Chamber stops the registration of deaths in the last 24 hours, Sinadef continues to receive information on deaths., the same ones that are ordered to determine the total number of citizens who lost their lives on a given day.

Not that he minsa make your reports with the intention of hiding figures because they do handle this information. What is missing is greater dissemination so that people know the real situation that the country is experiencing. The numbers that are presented seem light, but to say that there have been 104 deaths in a single day does raise alarms “. The specialist stressed that the Ministry of Health does have portals where this data is recorded, it would only be for the population to have greater facilities to access them.
