SANTIAGO, Nov. 24 (Xinhua) -- Chile registered 1,005 new daily cases of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) infection, pushing its total caseload to 543,087, the Health Ministry said on Tuesday.

In the same 24-hour period, 25 more patients died from the disease, raising the death toll to 15,131.

Of the total caseload, 518,834 people had recovered and 8,816 cases remained active, with 695 people hospitalized in intensive care units, including 539 on ventilators and 67 in critical condition.

Chile remains under a state of catastrophe, with a nighttime curfew to reduce circulation and the spread of the virus. However, several cities have moved to relax lockdown measures, while others, mainly in the south, have had to revert to stricter lockdowns due to a rise in infections.

On Monday, the country reopened its borders to foreign visitors in a bid to reactivate tourism.
