The number of intubated Covid patients is 138.

The total number of confirmed cases of infection since the beginning of the pandemic is 4,474,616, of which 52.18% are women.

355 deaths recorded in the week of July 25-31 from Covid-19, which is 34 deaths per 1 million people (change in a week: +21% ), resulting in the total number of pandemic victims since the start of the pandemic reached 31,377 people. Of those who died, 95.8% had an underlying disease and/or were 70 years of age or older.

Also this week, there is an EODY divergence between the number of deaths and the total number of deaths (last week: 30,999), hinting that the number of deaths for the week of July 25-31 was 378but not 355.
