A total of 1,19,198 in 6,44,011 coronavirus tests carried out in Bangladesh have turned out to be positive.
The health authorities have confirmed 3,412 cases after testing 16,292 samples in the span of 24 hours until Tuesday.
Since March 18, the government said 1, 545 people have died of COVID-19.
In the last 24 hours, 43 people died from the highly contagious disease.
Additional Director General of the Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS) Prof Dr Nasima Sultana came up with the disclosure at its daily health bulletin.
The detection rate of new patients on Tuesday has been recorded at 20.94 percent.
During the same period, 880 more patients made recovery, she said adding so far, 47,635 people have recovered from the disease.
Against the total number of detected cases, the recovery rate is 39.96 percent and the mortality rate is 1.30 percent in the country.
Among the deceased, 38 were male and five were female.
``Their age-based analysis says, one was aged between 11 and 20 years, one between one between 31 and 40, six between 41 and 50, 18 between 51 and 60, 10 between 61 and 70, five between 71 and 80 and two more were aged between 81 and 90 years,`` Dr Nasima said.
Sixteen patients died in Dhaka division, 15 in Chattogram division, six in Rajshahi division, two in Khulna division, two in Mymensingh division, one in Barishal division and one more patient died in Sylhet division.
Thirty people died at hospitals across the country while 12 died at homes. One more patient was declared dead upon arrival at a hospital,`` she added.
Dr Nasima noted that according to global statistics, globally men are more vulnerable to COVID-19 than women.
She cited Science Direct and said this happen because men are more affected by non-contagious diseases than women.
``Also men get occupationally exposed to diseases more than women. They also have behavioral risks such as smoking and not staying socially isolated. Another benefit for women is their innate immunity inherited because of XX chromosomes,`` she added.
Three more institutions have started RT-PCR testing in the country --- Sheikh Russel Gastro Liver Institute  and  Hospital, The DNA Lab Limited, and Centre for Advanced Research in Sciences (CARS) of Dhaka University.
Across the country, 680 more people were taken to isolation in the last 24 hours while 220 were released. Currently, 12,927 people are in isolation.
