The epidemic in the country has entered its second phase, as the virus is being transmitted in communities rather than just from one individual to another, it added.

The authorities stress that people, especially the elderly and young people, should not leave their homes and should observe the rules concerning the epidemic.

Currently, 117 people are quarantined and the authorities have taken 3,447 samples.
