In the latest health bulletin, authorities said that 31 people are in intensive care in a serious condition.

The new patients ranged from newborns to 83 years old. Some 206 people have recovered since the outbreak began several weeks ago.

A total of 8,700 are in institutionalized quarantine, while 132,600 are in self-isolation at home.

Some 21,460 tests have been carried out so far, according to the latest figures.
