The report of the Department of Health reported no deaths from COVID-19; meanwhile, 227 confirmed cases and 94 additional probable cases were registered.

Likewise, the agency's virtual tool, the dashboard, indicates that there are 159 people hospitalized 15 fewer than yesterday. [19659003] The total of the results of the confirmed cases of COVID-19 is 2,811. Of that total, 1,408 are women and 1,403 men; however, the total was adjusted by adding a case with a sampling date of June 8. The reported cases are those that have a positive PCR test, with a sample date of June 30 to July 10.

On the other hand, 94 additional probable cases were registered with a sample collection date from 6 to 10 July 2020. In this line, the total is 7,199, after being adjusted, by subtracting ten cases that had a positive molecular test, subsequently, and added to the cases registered as part of this report. On the other hand, 44 probable cases were added with sample dates from May 7 to June 23. The probable cases are divided into 3,863 women and 3,336 men.

The adjustments in totals are made as part of an effort by the Department of Health, entities and clinical laboratories to ensure that all samples taken for COVID-19 are recorded in the Bio Portal, regardless of the date it was taken.

Without additional deaths, the total number of confirmed deaths remains at 71 and the probable deaths add up to 96, so the total number of deaths is 167. It is important to remember that any death recorded after the report is issued will be reflected in subsequent reports.
