Puerto Rico exceeds once again the 100 hospitalized by COVID-19

The Department of Health reported Monday that the number of hospitalizations for COVID-19 stood at 104 after several weeks when the figure remained below 100.

Of that number, eight patients are incarcerated in an Intensive Care Unit and only one is connected to an artificial respirator.

The number of hospitalizations managed to drop, for example, to 78 on June 17.

Meanwhile, confirmed positive cases increased to 1,638 with 13 additional, while the probable positive cases were placed at 5,612 with 40 recently infected and another seven that had not been reported with a sample date of May 9 to 21.

Health added that deaths from COVID-19 remained at 153 after no deaths associated with the disease were reported.

"Without additional fatalities, the total number of confirmed deaths is 59 and the probable deaths are 94, so the total number of deaths is 153. It is important to remember that any death recorded after the report is issued will be reflected in subsequent reports, "the agency quotes in a press release.

Health defined as probable death that death of a patient who was diagnosed with COVID-19 using a serological (non-diagnostic) test or that your doctor recorded death using clinical criteria when evaluating symptoms. While confirmed deaths involve people who tested positive for a molecular (diagnostic) test.

Similarly, the term confirmed positive case refers to infections whose results were validated by a molecular test. Likewise, the probable case refers to that positive result for the disease that was obtained through serological testing.
