18 suspected Coronavirus cases test negative, Libya’s Disease Control Center says

The Libyan National Center for Disease Control said Sunday that 18 samples had tested negative for Coronavirus at the Reference Laboratory in Tripoli.

The National Center for Disease Control recorded on Saturday a new Coronavirus case, bringing the total to 18 COVID-19 patients.

It is worth mentioning that one COVID-19 patient, a woman who is above 80 years old, died of Coronavirus complications last week, recording first death in Libya.

Meanwhile, regarding recoveries; the Head of the Libyan National Center for Disease Control Badr Al-Deen Najjar said last Thursday that the new tests of the first Coronavirus patient in Libya had turned out negative.

The media office of the National Center for Disease Control said that the 73-year-old man was recovering and his health conditions were in constant improvement. 

“We are waiting for two consecutive negative Coronavirus tests so that we can discharge the man as soon as possible.” The center added.
