RAMALLAH, July 30 (Xinhua) -- Palestine on Thursday said that 380 cases were confirmed in its territory, bringing the total number of cases since March 5 to 14,838.

The Palestinian Health Ministry said that two Palestinians died from the virus in the past 24 hours, raising the death toll to 84.

Out of the total confirmed cases, 6,289 have recovered, including 6,219 in the West Bank and 70 in Gaza, said the ministry.

It added that there are 8,465 currently active cases under medical observation.

According to its latest report, World Health Organization said that the number of people testing positive for COVID-19 continues to increase in the West Bank with an average of 402 new cases daily since July 1.

As a result of the significant climb in cases, the Palestinian government has declared further restriction on movement during the Islamic festival of Eid al-Adha, to avoid social gatherings and potential contraction of the disease.

The Palestinian Health Ministry now has 14 centers designated to deal with COVID-19.

Overall, there are 35 treatment and quarantine centers in the West Bank and six in the Gaza Strip. Enditem
