translated from Spanish: Government added 3,069 new deaths suspected of Covid-19 and Minister Paris said that “no data has ever been hidden”

Rafael Araos, Head of Epidemiology of Minsal, advanced during the report of the pandemic delivered this Saturday, the data contained in the epidemiological report, which contain the figures of deaths on suspicion of Covid-19. In this regard, in addition to the 4,295 deaths of the daily count, 3,069 probable deaths were added without confirmation of PCR. Asked as to whether the daily number will be supplemented with this new figure, Araos dismissed this situation, ensuring that “the daily record will not be altered because we want to maintain trajectories and trends”, he argued, adding that “in the epidemiological report will add the number of deceased with and without confirmation”, reiterating that “they are parallel situations”. In addition, he added that “this is a permanent work of DEIS and we are starting from now and for as long as the pandemic lasts the delivery of data of the deceased with and without confirmation of diagnosis by laboratory”. Faced with this probable death toll, he also subsequently referred to health minister Enrique Paris, who said that “no data has ever been hidden,” arguing that it is “difficult to find these deceased patients because they were without positive PCR.” In doing so, he added that “in these two weeks we have maximized the delivery of information and that is why we have added the figure of approximately 3,000 deceased patients,” he closed.
