Two new cases of coronavirus were confirmed overnight in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, bringing total to 117, said the Palestinian government’s spokesman Ibrahim Milhem.

One case was reported in Ramallah for a man in his 20s who apparently got infected while working in Israel and was taken to the quarantine center in the city.

The second is for a man in his 50s who returned to the Gaza Strip last week through Rafah crossing with Egypt and was placed in confinement since then. He is the 10th case in the Gaza Strip while the rest are in the West Bank. A total of 18 have recovered and one death.
