The health ministry announced 704 new cases and two coronavirus fatalities, raising total cases to 22,019 and total deaths to 119.

The coronavirus fatalities involved two men, aged 67 and 90, both of whom suffered from underlying health conditions.

The new cases emerged after 17,451 tests were conducted.

Of the total of 704 new cases, 364 were people who tested positive to a rapid test. On Monday, the health ministry said that due to the overwhelming reliability of rapid test results, a confirmation of the result through a PCR test will no longer be required.
