Palestine on Saturday recorded seven new death cases of the novel coronavirus, bringing the total number of deaths to 199.
In a press statement, Palestinian Health Minister Mai al-Kaila said that among the seven new deaths, five were recorded in the West Bank, while two were reported in the Gaza Strip.
She said that her ministry reported 433 new cases infected with the virus, raising the total number of infections to 33,250.
Meanwhile, Hamas-run Health Ministry in the Gaza Strip warned of the increase in the infections
"because the residents do not abide by the precautionary instructions."
The government in Gaza is still imposing the full lockdown on the whole strip in order to contain the spread of the virus.
