Government officials in the Democratic Republic of Congo have denied any manipulation of its figures for coronavirus cases and deaths.
The controversy came as health officials announced DR Congo's latest Covid-19 figures which stand at 63 deaths from 2,025 cases, most of them in the capital, Kinshasa.
Late on Friday, the government reported that a doctor and a hospital administrator had been arrested and later released over accusations of falsely declared coronavirus cases.
The country's Council of Ministers met on Friday after President Felix Tshisekedi asked the health minister to investigate rumours of fake patient deaths linked to the virus.
A team of Chinese medical experts that arrived in Kinshasa earlier this month found no evidence that the number of virus cases or deaths were distorted, Jean-Jacques Muyembe, DR Congo's coronavirus front man, told a news conference on Friday.
