Libya's National Center for Disease Control on Tuesday announced two new coronavirus cases in southern Libya, bringing the total number to 77.

The two new coronavirus cases, the first in southern Libya, were confirmed out of 66 suspected samples received, the center said in a statement.

So far, 40 have recovered from the virus in Libya and three died, the center added.

The Libyan authorities earlier this month began bringing back Libyans stranded abroad after closing all the country's borders as a precautionary measure against the coronavirus. Enditem
