This brings the cumulative to  17 096 positive cases and 182 deaths since March 11, 2020

Speaking on national television Friday, Dr. Francisco Duran, the National Chief of Epidemiology, said that there were 7647 people hospitalized, among them 3970 positive cases.

The specialist added that the new cases were overwhelmingly confirmed case contacts and noted that since November 15, almost 70% of the newly detected patients had been linked to international travelers.

He described this trend as a violation of quarantine protocols since the newly arrived did not wait for the results of the second PCR test instructed to conduct regular social activities.

Of the newly diagnosed, 32 were imported cases.
