The Ministry of Health has urged that precautionary measures must still be adhered to as the Kingdom continues to roll out the vaccine to citizens and residents.
Assistant Undersecretary for Public Health at the Ministry of Health and member of the National Medical Taskforce for Combating the Coronavirus (COVID-19), Dr Mariam Al Hajri, emphasised that it is not possible to succeed in confronting the pandemic in light of any laxity or recklessness that may put the health of the community at risk.
She called on everyone to remain vigilant and cautious in order to maintain the continuous success of the national efforts being exerted to limit the spread of the virus, noting that the kingdom has provided a pioneering model for an effective response to the pandemic on carefully studied and accurate bases, earning it wide international praise.
The Ministry continues to urge people to limit the size of gatherings at home and at outdoor spaces, avoid contact with other people, always wear face masks when outside or in public places and adhere to all preventive and precautionary measures, as non-compliance poses a threat to everyone’s health.
Out of 11,085 COVID-19 tests carried out yesterday, 229 new cases have been detected among which are 109 expatriate workers, 108 new cases are contacts of active cases and 12 are travel-related. There were 218 recoveries, increasing total recoveries to 91,213.
