On Sunday, Libya’s National Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) announced the recovery of seven COVID-19 cases.

In a statement, the NCDC claimed that the lastest batch of 43 suspected samples had all tested negative for the virus.

The total number of confirmed cases in the country remains at 65, with 33 active cases under medical observation, 35 recoveries, and 3 deaths.

Earlier on Sunday, the ‘Supreme Committee to Combat Coronavirus’ of the Government of National Accord (GNA) renewed its curfew for a further 10 days.

The Head of the NCDC, Dr. Badr Al-Din Al-Najjar, announced that that the Center will be conducting a community-based epidemiological survey to estimate the prevalence of COVID-19 in the country.

Several Arab countries have tightened restrictions on movement and travel with the aim of curbing the spread of the virus. Trillions of dollars have been pledged in economic stimulus packages around the world to reduce the economic repercussions of the crisis.
