The Rwandan Ministry of Health reported late on Friday 22 new COVID-19 cases, the largest single daily increase since the country registered its first case on March 14, bringing the total cases to 176.

The new cases “reflect a rise in cases of cross-border truck drivers and their assistants,” the ministry said in its daily coronavirus update.

The confirmed cases to 176, the total number of recoveries still stands at 87.
So far, no deaths have been registered.
