Egypt reported 170 new coronavirus cases on Saturday, reporting a total tally of 107,555 cases since the outbreak began in mid-February.

The health ministry also reported eight new deaths, bringing the total deaths from the virus up to 6,266.

The ministry said that 99 patients had been discharged from hospitals in the past 24 hours, bringing the total number of recoveries to 99,452.

The rise in daily toll comes as reports indicate a rise in coronavirus cases nationwide, as the general public have been showing a relaxed enforcement of the preventive measures since a drop in coronavirus cases had been recorded in the past few months.

Egypt has urged caution in anticipation of any spike leading to a second wave, especially with the resurgence in cases of the coronavirus in many European countries, particularly with the advent of autumn.

However, Egypt said it will not reinstate a full or partial lockdown if coronavirus infections surge once more.
