Algeria has registered its first coronavirus death, APA reports citing Reuters.

It did not report any increase in the 20 cases confirmed there so far, mostly in the town of Blida.

Algeria said this week it would ban economic, social and political gatherings, though it is not clear if this will include weekly mass protests that have convulsed the capital for a year.
