Forty new cases were discovered in Gaza today, Palestine Chronicle correspondent Wafaa Aludaini reported, citing Gaza’s Ministry of Health.

Gaza is also suffering from a blackout resulting from the shutting down of the Strip’s only power plant.

The plant ceased on functioning on August 18, when it completely ran out of fuel as a result of new Israeli restrictions, including the complete closure of Karem Abu Salem crossing.

Gaza has also been bombed almost daily by the Israeli army. Meanwhile, on August 16, the Israeli navy declared the Gaza sea a closed military zone.
