Despite the increase in cases, the number of patients hospitalized due to the disease continues to decline
Despite the increase in cases, the number of patients being treated for the disease continues to decline, having fallen below 5,000 for the first time since mid-March, yesterday Wednesday.
Experts say this is because more young people become infected, who are less likely to need hospital care.
The total number of cases now stands at 209,365. The death toll rose by 17 today to 30,388.
