Mozambique on Tuesday registered 53 new cases of COVID-19, the highest increase in a single day since the country had its first case on March 22, bringing the total to 307, according to the country’s health authorities.

“A total of 269 people suspected of having COVID-19 have been tested in the past 24 hours, of which 53 have turned out to be positive and 216 negative for COVID-19,” said Rosa Marlene, national director of Public Health, at a daily press conference in Maputo.

All the new cases are of Mozambican nationality, of which 17 are asymptomatic and 36 have mild to moderate symptoms, said Marlene.

“Right now our country has 98 people recovered from COVID-19,” she said, adding that so far there have been two deaths from the disease, and a patient who had been infected with the coronavirus died of another disease.

The province of Nampula showed a higher increase of positive cases, despite having been one of the last provinces to register cases, said health authorities, warning that “there is an imminence of community transmission.”

Some quarantined cases are also said to be under investigation in order to find out their contacts and source of infection. Enditem
