The Colombian Ministry of Health reported 5,660 new cases of coronavirus in the South American country and 198 deaths from the disease this Thursday. These numbers total 835,339 positive COVID-19 cases worldwide since the pandemic began.
In the past 24 hours, 8,039 patients have recovered from the virus and a total of 23,504 PCR tests have been performed. With that balance, Colombia lies with 751,691 restored, 55,640 active cases and 26,196 deaths from coronavirus.
The regions with the highest incidence remain Bogotá with 270,515 positives and Antioquia with 116,110, although the public ministry warned this Thursday of the increase of more than 776 percent in infections in the department of San Andrés y Providencia.
In the last 30 days, 172 cases have been recorded for 1,336 and 14 deaths. The facility has warned that the region has only 13 intensive care beds, 9 of which are for the care of coronavirus positives, Radio Caracol reports.
In light of these figures, the Colombian Attorney General warned of a possible humanitarian crisis in the archipelago due to “serious deficiencies in the provision of health services in the archipelago”.
