Covid-19 in Bangladesh claimed 21 more lives and infected 980 others in 24 hours till Sunday morning.
This is the lowest number of deaths since May 26 when the country reported 17 single-day Covid deaths.
The latest cases were detected after testing 22,221 samples showing a slight fall in the daily-case positivity rate from Saturday’s 4.59 percent to 4.41 percent, said the Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS).
On Saturday, after more than four months, the country saw below 1,000 single-day cases, reporting 818 Covid cases in 24-hour period.
According to the DGHS, the fresh numbers of deaths and cases took the country’s total Covid-19 fatalities to 27,414 while the caseload mounted to 1,551,351.
Meanwhile, the mortality rate remained static at 1.77 percent.
The recovery rate increased slightly to 97.43 percent with the recovery of 1,312 more patients during the period.
So far, 1,511,479 people have recovered from the deadly virus infections, the DGHS added.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the daily case positivity rate remaining at 5 percent or below for 14 days is considered safe for mass unlocking.
However, Bangladesh eased its lockdown restrictions on August 11, even though public health experts had warned of Delta variant spread.
