The Ministry of Health, Wednesday, indicated that 13 new coronavirus cases were recorded out of 1, 033 tests which were done in the past 24 hours, bringing the total number of cases to 397.

The new cases relate to the Rusizi district cluster, and have been isolated and contacts traced. Rusizi district borders Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

Though, Rwanda and DRC have agreed to restore trade activities cautiously, the new cases of coronavirus could be a major setback on efforts to bring life back to normal.
This outbreak has resulted in two districts, Rusizi and Rubavu, to remain under lockdown as public transport and moto-taxi operations resumed on Wednesday.

Residents of Rusizi and Rubavu districts are not allowed to move outside their respective districts as health workers and officials work around the clock to contain the spread of the virus.

Rwanda has so far registered 2 deaths, 271 recoveries, leaving 124 active cases.
