Tunisia’s Ministry of Public Health has announced 56 new coronavirus (COVID-19) related deaths.
The Ministry, while giving an update on the COVID-19 situation in the North African country on Friday night, reported 2,649 new cases, raising the total number of coronavirus infections to 154,903.
The death toll from the virus rose by 56 to 5,108 in the North African country.
It also reported 1,615 hospitalized COVID-19 patients, including 344 in intensive care units, the ministry said in a statement.
Given the rapid spread of COVID-19 in some provinces of the country since the last week of 2020, Tunisian President Kais Saied, on Friday, called on the authorities to examine the possibility of re-imposing general lockdown in regions with high numbers of COVID-19 infections.
Quoted by the Tunisian private radio Mosaique FM, Saied underlined that the measures taken against the spread of COVID-19 have not led to concrete results, due to lack of compliance.
