Regarding children, 256 cases were detected in the past few hours, 15 of whom were less than one year old, 8 less than six months old and 4 were newborns.

Some 1,810 Covid-19 patients were medically discharged, so the number of recoveries amounts to 928,790.

Adding the 20 deaths reported in the past few hours, the death toll since the outbreak of the pandemic has soared to 8,153.
