Lebanon announced on Saturday registering four new confirmed coronavirus cases, raising the total infections to 733.

The country's death toll caused by COVID-19 has reached 25 after one patient passed away while receiving treatment in a private hospital in the city of Jbeil.

The health ministry said recoveries have risen to 197 since last February.

Lebanon had declared a state of health emergency to tackle the outbreak and imposed a lockdown and curfew to curb the outbreak.

It recently extended the emergency to May 10, but is eyeing a return to normal by gradually easing restrictions over several weeks.
