The spokesman for the Libyan Health Ministry Fawzi Awnis denies that Libya has registered Coronavirus cases in Tripoli or any other cities.
Awnis told Libya Alahrar TV on Sunday that once the Health Ministry registers Coronavirus cases, it will immediately announce it to the public via the Anti-Diseases National Center.
Many media outlets and social media pages posted over the last few days news about Coronavirus cases being registered in Libya, yet the Health Ministry denied the news.
The Health Ministry of the Government of National Accord said the passports of incoming travelers shouldn’t be stamped with entries until they have filled out a medical follow-up card at all borders in the country.
The Ministry of Health called on the Ministry of Transportation to inform airliners of the procedures that oblige passengers to fill out the medical follow-up cards as they return to Libya.
