According to the Health Ministry Officials, this is the highest reported number of cases of COVID-19 within a single day, since the outbreak of the Virus in the country on 17th March 2020; that currently there are five hundred and twenty-nine persons in quarantine, with four hundred and fourteen as active cases, nine deaths and forty-three probable cases.
