Of the people infected, another 14 people have died since last Tuesday*, September 8, bringing the death toll to 6.258. Another 92 patients have been admitted to hospital. As not all people are getting tested, the true number of people infected with the new coronavirus is higher than reported. 

*There may be a delay between the day of death and the day that it is reported.
