The statement added that 781 patients have been discharged after recovering from the virus, bringing the total number of recoveries to 266,444.
Over 8.2 million people have been fully vaccinated with the two recommended jabs.
The total administered doses include 15.1 million initial doses and 8.2 million second doses since the start of the country's vaccination campaign earlier this year.
As the country seeks to ramp vaccinations, Health minister Hala Zayed said the ministry is planning to increase the number of the vaccination centres from 1,100 to 2,002 by installing new camps at all public hospitals nationwide.
