Bangladesh reported the highest ever 230 coronavirus-related deaths in the past 24 hours, bringing the deaths toll from the pandemic to 16,419. Earlier, the highest single-day deaths record was 212 on Friday (July 9).

“The tally of infections has surged to 10,21,189 as 11,874 new cases were confirmed in the last 24 hours,” Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS) said today in its routine daily statement.

Among the dead in the last 24 hours, 133 were male and 97 were female. Highest 66 deaths reported in Khulna division while 56 died in Dhaka division.

DGHS said 29.67 percent of the 40,015 samples collected in 24 hours were tested positive while the infection rate was only 2.30 percent just on February 8 this year as, during the late winter season, the rate started decreasing sharply.

The DGHS statistics showed of the people infected from the beginning, 85.56 percent recovered, while 1.61 percent died.
