ALGIERS, Sept. 21 (Xinhua) -- The total COVID-19 cases in Algeria exceeded 50,000 on Monday after 197 new cases were added in the past 24 hours.

The tally of confirmed COVID-19 cases rose to 50,023, while seven new fatalities were reported, bringing the death toll to 1,679 in Algeria.

Meanwhile, 133 more patients were discharged from hospitals, bringing the total number of recoveries to 35,180.

Algeria, which recorded the first COVID-19 case on Feb. 25, has been resuming economic and commercial activities since June 7 as part of its efforts to return to normal life.

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

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

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