Palestine reports its first coronavirus related death
Government spokesman Ibrahim Milhem said the patient was a woman in her 60s from the occupied village of Biddo near Ramallah.
He said the patient suffered serious deterioration in her health on Wednesday morning and her situation became critical before she was pronounced dead.
The woman’s husband and daughter have tested positive for the deadly disease, bringing up the overall total of coronavirus cases to 64.
Out of the 64 coronavirus cases in Palestine, two are in Gaza, whilst the rest are in the occupied West Bank.
