Everyone can move, provided they wear a mask». Note that the disease is transmitted through postillons, sneezing or close contact responsible for the transmission of the virus.

During his speech at the level of the university hospital of Oran EHU, in the presence of the Prime Minister, Abdelaziz Djerad as well as the Minister of Industry and Culture and an advisor to the Presidency, As well as all the heads of services of this hospital, the minister praised the efforts of medical staff, which allowed Algeria to avoid the worst. “It is a feat to write in gold letters on the health registry”. Regarding the current situation, the Minister stated that : ‘It is mastered thanks to the mobilization, we are faced with figures that can worry the citizens, but this has to do with the increase in the number of diagnostic sites that currently exceeds twenty in the territory” he said.
Before adding: “The number of current cases remains satisfactory as it does not exceed 200 cases daily. What is very important is the number of deaths. With the Chloroquine treatment, which has been very successful and the work done by the medical staff, we have deaths below 10 per day. But the number that reassures us the most is that of the cases in reanimation that does not currently exceed 20, whereas at the beginning of the crisis, 6,000 beds were mobilized because we were worried that we would not be able to handle a large number of ICU cases,” he concluded.
