In Chile, there is already almost 140,000 cases of coronavirus after a new day when the cases found exceed 4,000. This emerges from the victim balance provided by the Ministry of Health on Monday.

Health Minister Jaime Mañalich told the daily press conference that a total of 4,696 people have been infected with 138,846 in the last 24 hours.

On the same day, another 87 people died from COVID-19, for a total of 2,264. In addition, among the 24,334 active cases, 1,581 were admitted to the intensive care unit, of which 380 were serious.

Mañalich has pointed out that “the development curve of new cases in Chile is very heterogeneous” because “it increases in some regions and falls in others”, which complicates the government’s recovery plans.
