COVID-19: 110 NEW CASES - 2


He said 15 more patients had recovered and were discharged today, raising the number of full recoveries to 75 so far.

Dr Adham said better awareness on social distancing had contributed to a flattening trend in the spread of COVID-19 in the past few days.

He said the adoption of better personal hygiene and adherence to directives issued by the Health Ministry had led to a situation where the increase in new cases the past few days was not as sharp as during the early stage of the outbreak.

"We cannot say yet that this trend is due to the implementation of the Movement Control Oder (MCO) but it is due more to (better) community awareness, especially on social distancing directive,” he added.

"We hope the implementation of the MCO can break the chain of infection and stop the spread of COVID-19," he said.
