RAMALLAH (Xinhua) – Palestine has extended its coronavirus-related state of emergency for another month amid a decrease in COVID-19 cases and fatalities in the Palestinian territories. In a decree issued by Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, the state of emergency was extended effective immediately so as to combat the spread of the virus, according to the official Palestinian news agency WAFA. The state of emergency was first issued in March 2020 after the discovery of the first cases of coronavirus in the Palestinian territories and has been extended or re-declared every month since then.
