Libya has established a new record for Covid-19 infections, with the National Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) reporting 4322 cases in only 24 hours.

According to the Centre’s periodic report, 15,388 samples were tested in its different labs across Libya, including 11,066 negative results.

According to the National Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 1206 instances of Covid-19n were completely documented, with 39 fatalities as a result of complications.

Health centres in Libya are suffering from a lack of oxygen and medical supplies, which certain areas have been obliged to supply via corporate collaboration and fund-raising.

Abdelhamid Dabeiba, Head of the Government of National Unity, in a recent statement, said that if the country’s health condition worsens, Libyan nationals would be required to get vaccinated in order to travel and visit hospitals.

The head of government stated that the country could no longer afford to lose more lives, which meant that the Government of National Unity might take strong action to obtain the vaccine, such as not allowing any citizens to travel or be treated in hospitals without it, which could make it mandatory for young people, adults, and athletes to take the vaccine.
