Following the tests performed at national level, compared to the last report, 6.136 new cases of people infected with SARS – CoV – 2 (COVID – 19) were registered, these being cases that had not previously had a positive test. The distribution by counties of the total and new cases can be found in the table below.
|No. crt.||County||Number of confirmed cases (total)||Number of newly confirmed cases||Incidence recorded at 14 days|
|43.||new cases not allocated by counties||5343*||224|
*Regarding the “new cases not allocated by counties”, we specify that their number is determined by the changes brought to the electronic platform through which the test results for the new coronavirus are reported and centralized. Thus, according to the new methodology, the testing centers directly introduce the results of the tests performed, and the epidemiological investigation will be performed at the level of the Public Health Directorates and the positive cases will be assigned to the county / locality to which the infected persons belong.
The coefficient of infections accumulated at 14 days, reported per 1,000 inhabitants is calculated by the Public Health Directorates, at the level of Bucharest Municipality and counties. Below you have the graph based on the reports received by CNCCI from the Public Health Directorates:
Aside from the newly confirmed cases, following the retesting of patients who were already positive, 1.144 people were reconfirmed positively. The distribution by county of these cases can be found in the table below.
|No. Crt.||COUNTY||Positive samples at retesting|
