Havana, Jul 14 (Prensa Latina) Cuba today reported 49 new positive cases of SARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus that causes Covid-19, for a total of 1,106,602 infected patients since the beginning of the pandemic in the country.

According to the daily report of the Public Health Ministry (Minsap), up to the previous day, 440 patients had been admitted, 215 were suspected and 225 were confirmed active. To detect the new infections, the country applied 2,461 samples, which brings the total number of tests performed since 2020 to 13,993,756.

So far, 8,529 people have died from complications associated with Covid-19 and Cuba has a lethality rate of 0.77 percent compared to 1.13 percent in the world and 1.67 percent in the Americas.

During the last 24 hours, Minsap reported 48 discharges, bringing the number of people recovered from the disease to 1,97,788, which represents 99.2 percent of all those infected.
