This brings the total number of coronavirus cases to 236,748 and the death toll to 4,295, the officials said during a news conference Sunday.
Chile is currently the third country in Latin America with the highest number of cases after Brazil and Peru, and ranks ninth globally, according to the latest figures from Johns Hopkins University.
The country’s chief epidemiologist Rafael Araos said there are other people who might have also died from the virus.
"In relation to those who died due to Covid without laboratory confirmation, that is, deaths in which Covid is a possible or probable cause, the number rises by 3,069," he said.
This number of “probable” deaths from coronavirus is not included in the country’s death toll.
