Covid-19 (Nov 30): 4,879 cases, R-naught at 0.95


COVID-19 | The Health Ministry today reported 4,879 new Covid-19 cases, bringing the cumulative infections to 2,632,782.

The fresh infections were surpassed by a total of 5,168 Covid-19 patients who recovered today. This is expected to help reduce the number of active cases.

Meanwhile, the R-naught value or infectivity rate declined to 0.95 as of Nov 29. This suggests that the outbreak is now in decline.

The R-naught value must be kept under 1.0 to prevent exponential growth in fresh infections.

  • Patients in ICU: 509
  • Intubated: 252

As of today, the number of Covid-19 patients (including suspected ones) in the intensive care unit (ICU) is 4.3 percent lower compared to a week ago.

Those who require intubation have also declined by 5.3 percent from a week ago.

Nationally, the number of hospital admissions in the last seven days have declined by 6.6 percent compared to the preceding week.

The Health Ministry will only publish today's breakdown of new cases by states after midnight on its CovidNow portal.
