The Libyan Health Minister, Ali Al-Zanati, said the epidemiological situation in the country is stable, denying “rumours” about the increase in registered cases infected with COVID-19, and the lack of oxygen in isolation centres.

Official data records a daily decline in the numbers of COVID-19 infections, after the numbers jumped remarkably during the past two weeks.

According to the National Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), the total number of confirmed cases reached 303,790 cases, including 82,001 active cases, and 4,165 deaths. It noted that more than one million citizens have received the vaccine.
