111 new cases of Covid-19 have been reported in the last 24 hours. 52 patients have made a full recovery from the virus. This is the highest number of cases registered in 24 hours since the start of the pandemic. On September 16th, 106 new cases were registered, which was then the highest number of cases registered.

Mathematician Prof Josef Lauri, contacted for a comment said “A day of sad records: the highest recorded number, 111,  of new cases and the number of active cases reaching 940. All-time series models, I tried to predict numbers in the high nineties for the next few days. This would make the present peak in the epicurve the highest reached so far. Nothing to look forward to. Our thoughts are with the frontliners fighting the epidemic and, should the increasing number of cases overwhelm the health services, anybody who would need urgent treatment”.

The infographic, issued by the health authorities, confirms that the number of active cases now stands at 940.

The cases announced today are still being investigated.
