The Federal District Health Department (SES-DF) registered 790 new cases of covid-19 in the last 24 hours. As a result, the number of infected people reached 203,576, of which 194,176 (95.4%) are recovered from the disease. The folder also registered 27 new deaths, which took the total number of victims of the new coronavirus to 3,526, including residents of the DF, Goiás and eight other states. The data came out in a bulletin released on Friday night (10/16).

The new deaths counted between June 28 and this Friday (October 16), when SES-DF recorded the death of a patient in a private hospital in Taguatinga. On Thursday (10/15), there were five. Of the 27 victims, three lived in Goiás and 14 were between 60 and 79 years old.

Considering only residents of DF, the highest incidence of confirmed cases is in the 30- to 49-year-old groups. The lethality of the disease is 1.8% and the mortality rate is 106 people for every 100 thousand inhabitants. Men represent the majority of patients (58.4%) who did not resist the complications of covid-19, and women are the largest portion (54.1%) among those who received a positive diagnosis.
