Libya Covid-19 Cases Approach 100 Thousand


On Sunday, the National Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) released a statement on Libya’s epidemiological situation and reported that the country is close to registering 100,000 cases of Coronavirus.

In its statement, the NCDC announced the registration of 728 new cases of Coronavirus, 701 recoveries, and 21 deaths.

According to the NCDC`s statement, the total number of cases in Libya since the outbreak of the pandemic in the country reached 98,381, of which 27,955 are still active, while 68,990 have recovered, and 1,436 have perished from the disease.

On Saturday, the NCDC’s director, Dr. Badr Al-Din Al-Najjar, expressed his concern about “the continuing escalation of coronavirus infections across the country.”

Al-Najjar warned that the pandemic “continuing at this pace may put pressure on the health isolation centres to an extent that makes it impossible for them to continue providing medical services.”

“It can be said that the situation has been fairly stable in the past weeks. But now the situation is getting worse, the number of cases is increasing, and there is pressure on health isolation centres,” Al-Najjar added.
