Tunisia on Thursday recorded 198 new COVID-19 cases, bringing the total infections in the country to 4,394, said the Tunisian Ministry of Health.
A total of 1,681 patients have recovered from the virus in Tunisia while 84 others have died so far, the ministry said in a statement.
Since June 27, when Tunisia reopened borders to tourists, 3,193 confirmed cases have been reported across the country, including 574 imported cases and 34 deaths, the statement said.
“The number of hospitalized COVID-19 patients reached 66 including 20 patients in intensive care units,” it said.
The Tunisian government has imposed strict preventive measures shortly after the detection of the first coronavirus case on March 2.
The North African country has received several batches of medical aid from the Chinese government, Chinese foundations and companies since late March to help its fight against the pandemic.
