The positive test rate continues to be below five per cent.

The health ministry's Thursday report indicates 119 new positive cases and three deaths. The total number of fatalities is now 320.

The positive test rate has risen from the 3.63% on Wednesday to 4.59%, but is still therefore below the WHO five per cent target. The 119 cases were based on 2,594 tests.
