Somalia confirmed 280 new positive Covid-19 cases, bringing the total number of confirmed cases in the country to 8,321. 36 more people were reported to have recovered from the disease, hence the total number of recoveries is now at 3,968. Eight people have succumbed to coronavirus in the country, the total number of fatalities now being 302.
