The Ministry of Health said it is to set up the seventh quarantine site as the first case of Covid-19 was confirmed yesterday.

"The new isolation site will be in Ghadames city, northwest of Libya," the ministry stated, explaining that the step comes in the framework of the national plan prepared to confront this pandemic.

Two quarantine sites are already set to be used; one in Tripoli and the other in Zuwara west of Libya, while a third quarantine will be established in Tripoli as well, according to the ministry, noting that the sites were prepared by specialized companies in this field.
