UNB, Dhaka
Covid in Bangladesh:  24 die in 24 hours, lowest since May 15

Covid-19 killed 24 more people and infected 1,144 others in Bangladesh in 24 hours till Thursday morning.

This is the lowest death toll in the country since May 15 when the country saw 22 single-day deaths.

The latest cases were detected after testing 24,820 samples showing a slight fall in the daily-case positivity rate from Wednesday’s 4.79 percent to 4.61 percent, said the Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS).

According to the DGHS, the fresh numbers of deaths and cases took the country’s total Covid-19 fatalities to 27,337 while the caseload mounted to 15,48,320.  However, the mortality rate remained static at 1.77 percent.

The recovery rate increased slightly to 97.38 percent with the recovery of 1,653 patients during the period.

So far, 15,07,789 people have recovered from the deadly virus infections, the DGHS added.

The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends that the daily case positivity rate should remain at 5% or below for 14 days before mass unlocking.

Meanwhile, Bangladesh eased its lockdown restrictions on August 11, even though public health experts had warned of Delta variant spread.

On September 12, after nearly 18 months, primary, secondary and higher secondary schools in Bangladesh reopened with some Covid-safety protocols in place.
