Egypt reported 197 new coronavirus cases on Tuesday, bringing the total infection tally to 108,122 since the outbreak began in February.

The health ministry also reported 14 new deaths, bringing the total number of deaths from the virus up to 6,305.

A statement said that 113 patients have been discharged after recovering from the virus, bringing the total number of recoveries to 99,765.

Although the reported infection rate has been low since August, the Egyptian government criticised on Monady what they called "a lack of adherence" by citizens to precautionary measures against the coronavirus, giving warning of reinstating "some previous tough measures."

The government has urged caution to spare the country any spike in the infections that could lead to a second wave of the pandemic, which many European countries have already experienced recently.
