In an interview with Rwanda Television on April 11th, 2020, Dr. Ngamije Daniel, Minister of Health confirmed that 11 more coronavirus patients have been discharged from hospital.
"So far, 118 patients have tested positive for coronavirus. Among them, 7 were discharged last week and 11 others will be discharged today."
Ngamije said that currently, health institutions have tested 8000 people who were suspected of carrying COVID-19 or who have been in contact with patients who tested positive. However, due to the fact that some patients were tested more than once, at least 11,000 tests have been conducted.
Rwanda will remain with 100 patients after discharging 11 today. All patients are being treated and are in stable condition. "Although we have prepared in advance an intensive care unit, all the patients remain in a stable condition."
Ngamije urged Rwandans to keep observing guidelines from the Ministry of Health to prevent further spread of the virus.
