THE National COVID-19 Secretariat (NACOSEC) has for the past four days recorded no COVID-19 related deaths in the country.

This is considered as good news amidst reports of the third wave of the pandemic which is currently being experienced in the neighbouring South Africa.
During the same days, at least 20 new COVID-19 cases were recorded in Lesotho.
Recently published statistics show that out of the 101 218 cumulative COVID-19 tests conducted in the country, 10 859 were positive, with 6 443 recoveries and 326 related deaths.

Lesotho has since relaxed its lockdown restrictions as the number of infections decreased.

The recent relaxation measures taken include allowing political rallies to be held and football matches to played with spectators in attendance.
