RIYADH, July 10 (Xinhua) -- Saudi Arabia's coronavirus cases rose on Friday to 226,486 with the registration of 3,159 new infections.

Of the total cases, there are 61,309 active cases, including 2,220 individuals who are receiving treatment at the intensive care facilities, the Saudi Press Agency reported.

The recoveries increased to 163,026 with the registration of 1,930 new recovered cases.

The death toll reached 2,151 with the recording of 51 fatalities.

The kingdom conducted 54,472 coronavirus tests in the last 24 hours, bringing the total tests to 2,179,808.

Saudi Arabia and China have supported each other in fighting the COVID-19 pandemic. In mid-February, the kingdom offered generous support to China to help fight the deadly virus at the early stage of its outbreak.

On March 11, Saudi Arabia delivered to the Chinese city of Wuhan a shipment of medical aid.

As the virus raged in Saudi Arabia, a team of eight Chinese medical experts visited the kingdom on April 15 to assist its anti-coronavirus fight.

On April 26, the two sides signed a deal worth 265 million U.S. dollars for expanding Saudi Arabia's coronavirus testing capacity. Enditem
