The number of Covid-19 deaths has continued to grow, with the health directorate reporting 112 deaths in the 24 hours leading up to 8:00 a.m. yesterday, the country’s second greatest daily toll.

The country’s biggest single-day death toll was 119 on Sunday.

The 112 deaths yesterday pushed the overall number of Covid-19 deaths to 14,388 — almost 1.59 percent of all verified cases in the country thus far.

According to a press release from the Directorate General of Health Services, since the pandemic reached the country in March 2020, Khagrachhari district has had 10 deaths, the lowest among the districts, while Dhaka has had 5,487 deaths (DGHS).

In the 24 hours leading up to 8:00 a.m. yesterday, 7,666 new Covid-19 instances were discovered out of a total of 31,982 tests.

The optimism rating increased to 23.97 percent from 23.86 percent the day before. Overall, 13.76 percent of people are optimistic.

Following the recent high in March and April, the positivity rate began to decline, and by mid-May, it had dropped by 7%.

However, it began to rise again as a result of increased movement of people centered on Eid-ul-Fitr, as well as weak adherence to health safety rules.

The optimism rate has been above 20% since May 23.

The overall number of confirmed cases has now grown to 8,96,770, according to the most recent census.

There were 67 men and 45 women among those who died yesterday. Thirteen of them died at home.

According to the DGHS announcement, one of the deceased was between the ages of 11 and 20, two were between the ages of 21 and 30, 14 were between the ages of 31 and 40, ten were between the ages of 41 and 50, 24 were between the ages of 51 and 60, and 61 were beyond the age of 60.

Yesterday, 35 people died in Khulna division, which has been the hardest hit by Covid-19 transmission over the last two weeks, followed by 22 in Dhaka and 21 in Rajshahi divisions.

In the meantime, 4,027 people recovered from the infection yesterday, bringing the overall number of people who have recovered to 8,11,700.
