The increase is 2,842 more than yesterday's update. To date, at least 208,915 people have been infected in the country since the beginning of the pandemic.
Some 4,417 patients are being treated in hospital for the virus. At least 1,739 have died.
The country was previously hailed as a success story during Europe's first wave of Covid-19 in March. But authorities are now struggling to cope with the rising number of infections throughout the country, and the government is enacting further restrictions on movement in order to stop the virus from spreading further.
Those measures went into effect at 6 a.m. local time and are expected to last until November 3.
