The Ministry of Health has announced 21 new cases, drawn from 3,737 sample tests taken on July 2, 2020, while 13 recovered and discharged from the hospital bringing the total number of confirmed cases to 1063 and 493 recoveries.

Among the new cases, 7 are from Kigali, 5 in Ngoma, 5 in Rusizi, and 4 in Kirehe.

Thursday, July 2, Rwanda Biomedical Center (RBC) started a new random COVID-19 testing program on the street of Kigali.

It began at the Stadium Amahoro and will continue in various other parts of the city, including in Nyamirambo and Kicukiro to determine the true picture of the pandemic on Rwandan soil.

Every 7 minutes, health workers, in collaboration with road safety officers, stop a group of people, whether in vehicles or pedestrians and ask them to take voluntary tests.
RBC says it plans by next week to have taken 5,000 tests.
