The first coronavirus-related death was reported in Palestine today as two more cases were also confirmed bringing total to 64, according to government spokesman Ibrahim Milhem.

He said the woman, confirmed last night with coronavirus, from the village of Biddo, near Ramallah, has died. She was in her 60s.

He said the woman suffered serious deterioration in her health this morning and her situation was critical before she was pronounced dead.

The two new cases are for the dead woman's son, 46,  and his wife, 41, said Milhem, as tests are being conducted on the other members of the same family.

Of the 64 coronavirus cases in Palestine, two are in Gaza, while the West Bank cases are concentrated mainly in the Ramallah and Bethlehem areas.
