Lebanon’s Health Ministry on Friday reported 14 new coronavirus cases, bringing the total number of the detected cases to 508.
“A new coronavirus case has been recorded, raising the death toll in Lebanon to 17,” Lebanon’s ministry said in a statement.
It also added that 644 has undergone the coronavirus test during the last twenty-four hours.
The global epidemic caused by the novel coronavirus has also claimed the lives of nearly 54,200 people, amid expectations that America will become the new epicenter of the epidemic.
The number of people recovering from the virus worldwide has exceeded 200,000.
China topped the list of countries that have known the largest number of recoverers after their number reached 76 thousand people, according to the site “Worldometer”, which is concerned with tracking the developments of the Corona virus.
Spain comes in second place with more than 26 thousand recovered persons, while Germany is ranked third with 19 thousand and 175 recovered cases from the virus.
More than 500,000 injuries were recorded in Europe, the most affected continent, at a time when the numbers are increasing in the United States (215,000). The country appears to be gradually becoming the new epicenter. In the absence of sufficient capabilities to detect injuries, these numbers are likely to be without reality.
