The official TAP news agency quoted the prime minister as saying that “Tunisia, which has succeeded in controlling COVID-19, is about to exit from the outbreak stage with the slightest damage after registering more than 1,000 cases and most them have recovered.”
He also stressed the continuation of the national effort to fight against COVID-19 during the summer period.
As of May 24, Tunisia reported a total of 1,048 confirmed cases of COVID-19, including 48 deaths.
The government has imposed strict confinement measures shortly after the announcement of the first coronavirus case in the country on March 2.
The North African country has received several batches of medical aid from the Chinese government, Chinese foundations and companies since late March.
