Tunisian Prime Minister Elyes Fakhfakh said on Sunday that his country is preparing to exit the stage of COVID-19 outbreak with the slightest damage.

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.

The prime minister announced that the resumption of tourism activities will take place after July, which will contribute to reviving the national economy.

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.
