The Health Ministry (MINSA) recorded a modest increase in covid-19 illnesses in its monthly statement on Tuesday.
The most current data, which covers the days of May 24 to 31, lists 51 cases, four more than the previous report, which covered the days from May 17 to 24.
Regardless of the fact that MINSA has not declared the Omicron version to be present in Nicaragua, the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) verified in mid-February that the nation has instances of this variation, with women accounting for the bulk of illnesses.
The health officials have not documented a rise in coronavirus infections since the latter three months of 2021 when it peaked at 718 confirmed cases in September.
In terms of mortality, since October 2020, only one fatality has been linked to covid-19, and it has been linked to various illnesses like lung embolism, diabetes, acute myocardial infarction, hypertensive crises, and pneumonia.
