KIGALI — Rwanda on Tuesday, April 7, confirmed the recovery of three more COVID-19 patients.
The Minister of Health Dr. Daniel Ngamije also reported that there were no new cases recorded in the country out of the 806 samples that were tested.
The development brings the total number of fully recovered patients to seven, as the number of confirmed positive cases remain at 105 with no reported death so far.
The Ministry noted that all patients are being treated in designated health facilities and that none of them is in critical condition.
On Sunday, April 5, the first recoveries ever since Rwanda confirmed the first COVID-19 case were discharged.
The four men, three Rwandans and one Burundian, who had been admitted to the Kanyinya health facility, were discharged after testing negative twice, according to the Ministry of Health.
The minister also warned against stigmatising those that had been discharged.
As the number of confirmed cases surge, the Government has taken several measures to curb the spread of the virus, the recent one being extending the COVID-19 lockdown to 15 more days to April 19.
Globally, coronavirus cases have risen to more than 1, 407,123, while the death toll now stands at more than 80,750, in 184 countries
