The National Center for Disease Control said that the first Covid-19 patient in Libya is recovering.

The 73-year-old man who tested positive for the virus about two weeks ago is doing well in the hospital, the center confirmed on its Facebook page, explaining that he is awaiting a second test after the first one came out negative, to confirm his full recovery.

On Thursday, an elderly woman died of coronavirus, the first fatality to hit the country. The National Centre for Disease Control said that her tests only came out after her death.
