8 new cases of coronavirus were diagnosed domestically yesterday. Of these, just 3 were quarantined at the time of diagnosis. This follows 20 and 21 diagnoses on Thursday and Friday respectively, and 10 on Saturday. As fewer samples are taken on Saturdays and Sundays, there is often a dip in confirmed cases over the weekend. Whilst numbers remain much lower than they were in October, the incidence of infections has crept up slightly since last week, now 38.5.
41 are currently in hospital with coronavirus and 2 are in intensive care.
