Libya’s health agency says the North African country recorded 19 new deaths from coronvirus (COVID-19) complications.
The National Center for Disease Control of Libya, on Monday, in an update, reported 847 new COVID-19 cases were recorded after testing 3,598 suspected samples.
The agency said the figure raises the total confirmed number in the country to 28,796.
Meanwhile, 316 more patients have recovered from the disease and 19 died, raising the total number of recoveries and deaths to 15,384 and 450 respectively.
After the first case was announced in March, Libyan authorities closed the country’s borders, shut down schools and mosques, banned public gatherings, and imposed a curfew in order to prevent infections alongside several other African nations.
China donated medical aid to Libya in June to help the country fight the pandemic, including 834 nucleic acid diagnostic kits, 5,000 medical protective suits, 15,000 N95 face masks, 100,000 surgical masks, 5,000 pairs of goggles, and 5,000 pairs of medical gloves.
