The change in the number of deaths should not be interpreted as having occurred in the last 24 hours. In the same way, it is important to point out that the death report may vary, to the extent that the processes of registration and codification of the causes of death take place, which could take several days.

On the other hand, the total of the confirmed COVID-19 case results is 12,371. The total was adjusted after adding 15 cases with a sampling date of July 18 to 29. Of that total, 6,449 are women and 5,918 men; four cases remain under investigation in this area. The reported cases are those that have a positive PCR test, with a sampling date of August 3-14. The figure of 633 new confirmed cases in one day appears to be the highest reported in a 24-hour period by the government.

As part of the report, 394 additional probable cases were registered, with a sampling date which runs from August 5 to 15. In this line, the total is 15,342, after being adjusted, by subtracting 81 cases that had a positive molecular test, later, and were added to the cases registered as part of this report.
