JUBA – South Sudan has confirmed 82 new cases of COVID-19 in the last 24 hours, according to the undersecretary at the Ministry of Health Dr. Makur Koriom.
This brings the total number of those tested positive to 551.
“The public health laboratory releases test results of the last 24 hours which were about 271 test results and out of this, 52 tests were confirmed positive,” Dr Koriom told journalists on Friday evening.
He said currently there are 15 patients still receiving healthcare at the Dr. John Garang Infectious Disease Center.
Dr. Koriom said so far the total number of recorded coronavirus deaths is 6 and 6 recoveries.
Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a newly discovered coronavirus.
The World Health Organization says the best way to prevent and slow down transmission is be well informed about the coronavirus, the disease it causes and how it spreads.
Protect yourself and others from infection by washing your hands or using an alcohol based rub frequently and not touching your face.
The COVID-19 virus spreads primarily through droplets of saliva or discharge from the nose when an infected person coughs or sneezes, so it’s important that you also practice respiratory etiquette, for example, by coughing into a flexed elbow.
