Paul Reid, CEO of the SE, said the number of cases has decreased and that positivity rates and the number of close contacts have also decreased.
However, he stressed that hospital cases and the number of ICU patients had not yet decreased.
Mr Reid made the comments when 552 new cases of Covid-19 were confirmed by the National Public Health Emergency Team.
Two other deaths related to the virus have been reported.
On Sunday at 2 p.m. there were 330 Covid-19 patients in hospitals, including 47 people in the intensive care unit with the virus.
17 more people were hospitalized in the past 24 hours.
Mr Reid appealed to people to continue their efforts in the coming weeks as the country wants to avoid the trend of rising cases in Europe and the UK.
He tweeted, “Some signs of encouragement this week.
“Reduction in cases, positivity rates and close contacts.
“But hospital cases and intensive care units are not yet reducing.
“So let’s keep our vigilance and resilience for the coming weeks to avoid the trend in Europe and the UK.”
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced on Saturday that England is facing a second lockdown from Thursday through December 2 to curb soaring infection rates.
On Saturday, Mr Reid said the number of positive cases had continued to decline, along with a decrease in demand for positivity and community testing.
He said this trend could help reverse the recent growing trend of people being taken to the hospital and intensive care unit.
He added, “Not a comfortable time for many, but let’s keep that early momentum going.”
