These are PCR test results, the ministry added, underlining that 5 of them were imported while the rest were connected to the Feb. 20 Community Event.
Besides, 80 more patients have recovered successfully while five others have lost their lives due to the pandemic (3 of them have not been vaccinated); the total cured and death cases in the Kingdom thus stood at 115,447 and 2,829, respectively.
