The rise in infection cases is expected in this time period due to daily activities and poor social distancing measures, Al-Sanad told KUNA on Monday.
He added that ICU units cases rose by five percent last week, calling on people to stick to health measures to avoid a second wave.
He stressed on the importance of maintaining social distancing, wash hands regularly, wear a mask everywhere, while advising people with terminal diseases, pregnant women and elderly to avoid leaving the house unless it’s necessary.
