Rwanda records 23 more Covid-19 cases

Rwanda on Saturday, July 25, reported 23 new Covid-19 cases and 7 recoveries.

The results were obtained from 4,330 sample tests conducted in the last 24 hours.

 

According to the Ministry of Health, of the new cases, 11 were reported in Kigali among residents of high-risk areas and villages under lockdown.

 

However, in the statement, the high-risk areas of Kigali were not disclosed.

 

Also, 7 cases were detected in Rubavu district and five others in Kirehe district.

Since the outbreak of this pandemic in the country by mid-March, the country has recorded a total of 1,752 Covid-19 cases of whom 907 have already recovered.

The pandemic has also claimed the lives of five people, two of whom being peacekeepers serving on a UN mission.

In total, the country has conducted 238,007 Covid-19 sample tests.

In a bid to further contain the pandemic in the country, Rwanda Biomedical Centre (RBC) announced that Community Health Workers (CHWs) will soon be engaged in the Coronavirus treatment process.

This development, according to RBC, was adopted due to the significant role played by the community health workers in reducing Malaria deaths in the country.

These Community Health Workers have reduced malaria deaths by 60%, according to the statistics issued by RBC.
