BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:20 P.M.) – The Syrian Ministry of Health announced on Sunday that July 5th witnessed the highest daily death toll from the coronavirus (COVID-19).

In a statement late on Sunday, the Ministry of Health said they registered three new deaths due to the coronavirus, bringing the overall death toll to 13.

On Sunday, Syria recorded 20 new cases of the virus, bringing the total number of cases in the country to 358, and this new number represents twice the number recorded by the Ministry of Health the previous day.

Syria is considered one of the least affected countries in terms of the number of infections in the Middle East region, according to figures announced by the government and reported by the World Health Organization.

It is worth noting that the first coronavirus infection in Syria was recorded on March 22 after a citizen coming from abroad tested positive.

The first death caused by the virus was recorded on March 29th.
