Gaza records 2 deaths, 100 infections from coronavirus

-

Palestinian health authorities registered two fatalities and 100 infections from the coronavirus outbreak in the Gaza Strip on Sunday, Anadolu Agency reports.

In a statement, the Health Ministry said the territory’s tally rose to 1,819 confirmed cases, including 15 deaths, and 216 recoveries.

“The number of active cases in Gaza rose to 1,588,” the ministry said.

Reeling under a crippling Israeli blockade since 2007, the Gaza Strip suffers a severe shortage of medicines and medical supplies, in addition to daily electric outages.

The Hamas-led government imposed a lockdown in Gaza on Aug. 24 to help curb the outbreak in the blockaded enclave, although the authorities have recently eased the restrictions in some neighborhoods in the territory.
