ALGIERS, Sept. 27 (Xinhua) -- Algeria on Sunday reported 153 new COVID-19 cases, the lowest daily increase since June 29, bringing the total tally of infections to 51,067, the Ministry of Health said.

The ministry also announced three new fatalities from coronavirus, raising the death toll in the North African country to 1,714.

Meanwhile, 104 more patients were discharged from hospitals, bringing the total number of recoveries to 35,860.

Algerian Education Minister Mohamed Ouadjaout said on Sunday that the date of the 2020-2021 school year has not been set yet due to the continued spread of COVID-19.

He stressed that the Education Ministry will consult with social partners on the terms to carry out this new school year for the sake of preserving the health of students and all the staff working in educational sectors.

Algeria, which reported its 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. 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
