SANTIAGO, May 26 (Xinhua) -- Chile's Heath Ministry on Tuesday reported 77,961 people have been infected with the novel coronavirus and 806 have died from the disease in the country.

In the past 24 hours ending 9 p.m. Monday local time (0100 GMT on Tuesday), 3,964 new cases were detected and 45 more patients died.

Of the new cases, 3,618 had symptoms and 346 were asymptomatic, while a total of 30,915 people have recovered from COVID-19 since the outbreak began.

Currently, 1,029 patients are on ventilators, including 229 in critical condition.

According to Health Minister Jaime Manalich, Chile is now turning to high-flow oxygen therapy, a less invasive treatment for patients that require help in breathing but are not so critical that they need to be put on a ventilator.

Santiago, where most of the cases are concentrated, is in lockdown until Friday.
