The number of tests conducted since the onset of the epidemic has steadily increased and screening and tracing techniques have improved, leading to an increase in declared contaminants.
The number of cases diagnosed, however, reflects only a fraction of the actual total fraction of contamination, with a large proportion of cases less severe or asymptomatic, which is still not low.
The assessment was done using data collected by AFP offices from information from competent national authorities and the World Health Organization (WHO).
The figures for the 24-hour increase may not correspond to those published a day earlier, due to improvements made by the authorities or late publication of the figures.
