The National Center for Disease Control (NCDC) has recommended reinforcing precautionary measures of wearing masks in public places and physical distancing in the Tripoli area.

In its weekly report, the NCDC called for quickly raising the number of daily PCR tests for COVID-19 by including the various tests conducted in public as well as private sectors, to raise the center's ability to detect cases.

The Center urged to raise the efficiency of the monitoring and rapid response teams and the pandemic information management team in order to provide epidemiological information on a daily and continuous basis.

It also called for rehabilitating the isolation centers in Tripoli, support the infection control programme and monitor the work of infection control committees by government agencies with the intensification of vaccination and awareness campaigns.

In its report, the NCDC confirmed the emergence of new hotbeds of the Corona epidemic in areas with high population density.

However, the Centre reassured the continued stability of the epidemiological situation in the country as a result of the slowdown in the spread of the disease, in addition to the stability of the weekly rate of positive cases and the death rate.
