London, 1 June 2020:
Libya’s National Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) reported 38 new cases in the south of Libya and eleven recoveries over the weekend. The latest figures bring Libya’s total cases to 156, with 52 recoveries and still only 5 deaths.
Random sampling continued in various regions of Tripoli with Janzur being the latest targeted area as the authorities seek to expand the percentage of testing.
Meanwhile, in the east of Libya, authorities have ended the curfew within cities that have no Coronavirus cases but have prohibited travel between cities.
