Nine new cases of coronavirus patients have been recorded out of 892 tests conducted over the last 24 hours, all linked to cross border movement. The new cases bring the numbers to the total cases registered to 336.

The new cases follow two more cases which were reported by the Ministry of Health on Sunday as the country continues to observe a strict regime aimed at containing new cases emanating from cross border movements.

The Ministry said that all cases were isolated upon arrival. Rwanda has not reported any community-linked cases. East African Community countries are intensifying efforts to curb cross border cases linked to trucks transporting goods between countries.

The number of active cases increased from 90 to 98 while one person recovered, putting total recoveries at 238.

Rwanda National Police called upon all people to continue observing guidelines put in place by the government to contain the spread of COVID-19.
