The ministry in its latest report on Saturday said one new laboratory confirmed case of COVID-19 was registered, bringing the total number of COVID-19 cases ever confirmed in the country to 37.
“The new case is the second documented COVID-19 related death since the first case was reported in the country,” the ministry said of the new case.
