Covid-19 positive test rate now higher than at peak
On November 25, The Citizen reported that - according to the latest Covid-19 test results - 14 out of 100 tested patients came back positive, a figure significantly higher than when the country had reached its peak in July. By November 24, the country stood at 769 759 cumulative confirmed cases, with 2 080 new infections recorded out of the 14 377 new tests. This meant a 14% positive rate, while experts say a below 10% positivity rate was more ideal. The increase appears to have been due the country moving to Level 1 lockdown.
