The rate is the outcome of 4,019 more people also testing positive for Covid-19, raising the total number of confirmed cases in the country to 153,277

The test-positivity rate for Covid-19 between Wednesday and Thursday stood at 21.89%, some 77 percentage points higher than the previous that was recorded in the last 24 hours. 

Also, the latest rate translates into the ongoing trend of one in every five samples testing positive, which has been a regular phenomenon for the past few weeks.

The rate is the outcome of 4,019 more people also testing positive for Covid-19, raising the total number of confirmed cases in the country to 153,277.

Sharing the latest data, the DGHS official said that at present the total infection rate against the number of total tests was 19.10%.

Meanwhile, another 38 Covid-19 patients died in the last 24 hours, taking the death toll from the deadly disease to 1,926 in Bangladesh.
