The figures were released at a press conference with the Federal Health Office in Bern yesterday. 

It was also revealed the number of daily infections is up slightly, with 52 new cases and its possible the R number is over 1, meaning each infected person is passing the virus to more than one other person on average. 

There are also concerns about imported cases. As many as 20% of new cases could be from those entering the country.
