20 new domestic infections were diagnosed yesterday. 9 of them were in quarantine at the time of diagnosis whilst 11 of them were not. This is the most that have been diagnosed in a single day for two and a half weeks: the 10th of November saw 26 new domestic infections.
42 are currently hospitalised with coronavirus and 2 of them are in intensive care. The incidence of domestic infections has crept up very slightly since yesterday, from 32.5 to 35.7. However, compared to the rest of Europe this infection rate is low. This slight increase follows yesterday’s news that infections are being traced back to parties and shopping centres.
