(TAP) – Minister of Health Abdellatif Mekki warned against the serious epidemiological sign of the case of death of a person infected with COVID-19 recorded in Mahdia.

He stressed the need to "comply with prevention instructions, since we have not moved beyond danger."

The minister said in a statement Tuesday the case of death recorded in Mahdia is a local case of infection; its source of transmission is unknown, which means that the virus is active in this region in one or more individuals who have not been identified and who are unaware of their infection by the virus.

The five other cases infected with the COVID-19 registered on Monday are imported cases. The patients are already in mandatory isolation, which means they pose no major problems, he said.

Health teams in the governorate of Mahdia are working to control the epidemiological situation, he added, calling on citizens to comply with the prevention guidelines, to cooperate with the health teams and not to be frightened.
