San Salvador, El Salvador, May 31 (Prensa Latina) El Salvador’s health officials admitted Wednesday that there was a modest spike in Covid-19 instances over the week, owing to the nation’s unusual “winter” conditions (rainy season).

In its most recent version, the Department of Health’s official accountant also indicated that the disease that is caused by the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus had not produced any infections or deaths for several days in a succession.
Other health-care authorities, on the other hand, verified a minimal increase in visits from patients with Covid-19 signs, particularly among those who had recently been overseas.
Three patients are now in serious condition, 13 are in critical illness, 44 are in management can take, 122 are unstable, and 164 are symptomatic, totaling 345 face challenges in this Central American country.
