ALGIERS, Jan. 19 (Xinhua) -- Algeria on Tuesday reported 249 new COVID-19 cases, bringing the total infections in the North Africa country to 104,341.

The death toll from the virus in Algeria rose to 2,843 after three new fatalities were recorded, said the Algerian Ministry of Health in a statement.

It said 186 patients have recovered from the disease and been discharged from hospitals, bringing the total number of recoveries in the country to 70,993.

China and Algeria have offered mutual help in the fight against the pandemic in 2020.

In February 2020, Algeria sent a medical donation to help China combat the coronavirus. In return, China sent several batches of medical aid to Algeria.

In addition, a Chinese team of medical experts arrived in Algeria on May 14, 2020, for a 15-day mission to help fight the coronavirus, by sharing China's experiences in curbing the spread of the contagious disease.
