ALGIERS, July 24 (Xinhua) -- Algeria on Friday registered 675 new COVID-19 cases, the highest daily record since the outbreak of the pandemic in the North African country, bringing the total number of confirmed cases to 26,159.

Djamel Foutar, head of the COVID-19 Detection and Follow-up Commission, told a press conference that 12 fatalities and 324 recoveries were registered over the last 24 hours, raising the death toll to 1,136 and the recoveries to 17,693.

The number of infections has been on an upward trend since the government decided to lift a total lockdown in June 7.

On Feb. 25, Algeria recorded its first infection with COVID-19.

China and Algeria have offered mutual help in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.

In early February, Algeria sent medical donation to help China combat the coronavirus. In return, China has sent two batches of medical aid to Algeria on March 27 and April 15, respectively.

A Chinese medical expert team arrived in Algeria on May 14 for a 15-day mission to help fight the coronavirus, through sharing China's experience in curbing the spread of the contagious disease. Enditem
