Mozambique has set a new record in the number of daily Covid deaths, registering 32 deaths between Tuesday and Wednesday.

The health ministry on Wednesday also announced 1,704 new infections, with a cumulative 103,713 positive cases now registered.

So far 1,190 have died from the virus.

Most of the infections have occurred in the capital city and the large province of Maputo.
