Coronavirus has claimed more 241 lives in Bangladesh over the last 24 hours, raising the death toll to 22,652 in the country.

The Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS) said it in a press release on Sunday afternoon.

It is the 15th day in a row that Bangladesh has reported over 200 single-day deaths.

Meanwhile, the number of daily cases went up during the 24 hours period as 10,299 more people tested positive for the virus on Sunday, which was 8,136 a day ago.

However, the positivity rate further dropped to 24.52 per cent in the preceding 24 hours, maintaining a downward trend for more than a week.

The death rate has also remained high at 1.67%, thanks to the highly transmissible delta variant of Covid-19.

The health officials tested 42,003 samples in 707 labs across the country.
