The new cases have been identified after conducting investigations by the research and investigation teams of the Ministry of Public Health.
Cases of infection have also increased among citizens and residents, as a result of contact with infected family members, who had been infected in the workplace or through visits and family gatherings.
In this context, the Ministry affirmed that the high number of infections among citizens and residents is due to the lack of compliance by some with precautionary measures, the most important of which is physical distancing and reducing the need to leaving home.
All the new infected cases have been quarantined where they are receiving the necessary medical care.
