Ten new positive cases of COVID-19 were identified on Friday 26 February.

This therefore brings the overall health figures for the Principality to 1,942 people affected by the Coronavirus since the beginning of the health crisis.

This evening, 48 people are being treated at the CHPG: 35 patients, 21 of whom are residents, are hospitalised. Moreover, this evening, 13 people, six of whom are residents, are in intensive care.

Today, there are two further recoveries to be noted. The total number of people who have recovered thus amounts to 1,692.

This Friday evening, 135 people are being monitored by the Home Patient Follow-up Centre, which provides medical support to people with mild symptoms, who are invited to self-isolate at home.

In line with the practices adopted by the World Health Organization and neighbouring countries in this regard, these daily health assessment figures report only on resident persons affected by the Coronavirus.

From now on, every Friday, the Prince's Government will give a weekly update on the vaccination strategy that has been implemented in the Principality.
