Just four Covid-19 cases were confirmed across the Maldives within the past three weeks.
Nearly a month since the last statistics were publicized, the Health Protection Agency (HPA) publicized its latest Covid-19 figures on Monday.
As such, the public health authority revealed that four Covid-19 infections were reported between June 11 and July 1.
Out of these, three were confirmed from the congested capital of Maldives, Malé City and the remaining one was confirmed from others, which include industrial islands, liveaboard vessels and resorts.
No new infections were detected from residential islands outside of the capital in the reporting period.
Between June 11 – July 1, the public health authority also recorded one new hospital admission.
With this development, Maldives Covid-19 case tally currently sits at 186,687.
Maldives reported its first Covid-19 fatality in April 2020. Since then, 316 deaths from Covid-19 have been reported. No new fatalities were reported in the past three weeks.
Maldives began observing a surge in the weekly Covid-19 numbers reported across the country earlier. However, cases have been declining greatly once again.
Despite the Covid-19 caseload going on a downward spiral, there has been an alarming increase in the wide-spreading common cold infections amid the worsening weather conditions.
Authorities have urged caution as the common cold is also a respiratory disease that can quickly spread within close proximity.
The public has been urged to seek immediate medical assistance and consult a doctor if they are having common cold symptoms such as persistent cough, fever and sneezing for an extensive period or if they are considered high-risk individuals.
