Ramallah (QNN) – Palestinian Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh said on Sunday that 15 out of the 38 patients of novel COVID-19 (coronavirus) in in the West Bank are showing signs of recovery.
Speaking at a press conference at the Prime Minister’s Office in Ramallah, Shtayyeh said these signs of recovery in the 15 patients do not mean they have fully recovered, but are rather an indicator that the measures taken so far are “in the right path”.
He said six of the other cases re-tested positive for the disease, with two cases described as moderate and one case described as critical, that is a German woman.
He said the 21 patients who were first tested positive for the virus will undergo two other health checks to make sure they have fully recovered.
“This is very reassuring, but nothing will change in the measures taken,” the Prime Minister said. He expressed thanks to the medical staff and security services for the strenuous efforts they have made since the outbreak of the disease to restrict its spread.
