TODAY NICARAGUA – For the first time in four months, the Nicaraguan Ministry of Health (Minsa) reported fewer than 100 positive cases of COVID-19 per week.

According to the latest report published on September 29, last week they only treated 97 people, adding 5,170 infections as a total of infections since the confirmation of the first case.

Likewise, authorities reported that for the second consecutive week there were only two deaths attributable to COVID-19. Raising the death toll to 151 and lowering the lethality of the disease to 2.9%.

However, they acknowledge that there were other deaths caused by other diseases. “They have frequently had associated conditions such as: high blood pressure, diabetes mellitus, obesity, heart disease, immunodeficiency syndrome, chronic kidney failure, a history of stroke, pulmonary tuberculosis and chronic lung diseases”, they say.

Those “other deaths” that the Ministry of Health attributes to comorbidities have been widely denied by epidemiology experts. Since the beginning of June, a CONFIDENTIAL report showed how the Minsa uses comorbidity to hide the real figures on the pandemic.

In contrast to these figures, the COVID-19 Citizen Observatory reported that, until September 23, there would be 10,396 infections and 2,735 deaths in the country due to the pandemic.

75% have recovered

According to data from the Minsa, since the beginning of the pandemic 3,898 infected have recovered, placing the country with a recovery percentage of 75.40%, the highest in Central America.

However, authorities do not report how many of these people were left with sequelae due to the disease and how many died after being discharged.

“The sequelae depend on the severity of the patients’ problems. For example, those who are admitted to the Intensive Care Units (ICU) are more likely to have cardiovascular and pulmonary sequelae. There are even some that can have very serious complications due to prolonged intubation ”, explained the doctor, Carlos Quant, in a CONFIDENCIAL report.

Lack of information

The Observatory regretted in its latest report that almost six months after the report of the first case of COVID-19, “the people still do not know what the true situation of the infection is.”

“There have been no reports of prevalence, the actual data on the number of mild, moderate and severe patients is unknown and, even in the case of the deceased, the true magnitude of the pandemic is unknown,” they explained.
