Seven new cases of coronavirus were confirmed early this morning in the besieged Gaza Strip, according to the Palestinian government spokesman Ibrahim Milhem.

The seven patients in Gaza came down with the virus after coming to contact with the first two who returned from Pakistan.

Meanwhile, Palestine reported its first death from the coronavirus Wednesday.

A 60-year-old female patient with serious health challenges died in the occupied West Bank, Milhem told reporters in Ramallah.

The total cases in the West Bank and Gaza stand now at 73.
