Of the 596 intubated patients, 75.8% are over the age of 70 or suffer from preexisting conditions. Their median age is 65, and 167 of the patients are female. A total of 597 patients have been discharged from ICUs around the country.

The 111 new deaths recorded on Tuesday bring the total number of fatalities in the country to 2,517. Of all those who lost their lives after suffering with the virus, a total of 1,021 have been women.
