WHO is concerned about the rapid spread of Coronavirus in Libya

The Libyan Address Journal

The World Health Organization has expressed its concern over the rapid spread of the novel coronavirus in Libya, at a time when the country suffers from a severe shortage of tests and laboratory capabilities to detect the virus.

The National Center for Disease Control has counted a total of 11,834 cases of coronavirus infection, of which 10472 are active, 1,152 recovered, and 210 deaths, since the epidemic spread in Libya last March.

“We are concerned about the rapid spread of the virus in the country,” said the representative of the World Health Organization in Libya, Elizabeth Hof, and added: “While new cases registered have increased dramatically, tracking of sick contacts remains difficult.”
