Egypt detected 351 new coronavirus cases on Saturday, bringing the total infections tally to 115,183 cases since the outbreak began in mid-February.

The health ministry also reported 13 new deaths, bringing the total deaths from the virus to 6,621.

The statement said that 100 patients had been discharged from hospitals in the past 24 hours, bringing the total number of recoveries to 102,490.

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 has been recorded in the past months.

Egypt has urged caution in anticipation of any spike leading to a second wave, especially with the resurgence in cases of the coronavirus and lockdowns 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 spike.
