This was decided at a meeting of the the Government’s Executive Committee, chaired remotely by His Royal Highness Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, the Crown Prince, Deputy Supreme Commander and First Deputy Prime Minister, a Bahrain News Agency report said.
The decision, effective May 7, follows a report submitted by the National Medical Task Force to Combat the Coronavirus, headed by Lieutenant-General Dr Shaikh Mohammed bin Abdullah Al Khalifa, Chairman of the Supreme Council of Health.
The Executive Committee underlined that the well-being of citizens and residents remains at the heart of all preventive measures introduced to mitigate the spread of the virus.
HRH the Crown Prince highlighted that ongoing compliance with health orders during the holy month of Ramadan demonstrates the strong sense of solidarity and collective Covid-19 awareness among the kingdom’s citizens and residents, adding that both concepts underpin the success of all virus mitigation efforts and must continue in order to safeguard the health of all.
He also noted that the holy month provides an opportunity to reflect on shared values that strengthen social cohesion and create a common purpose against Covid-19.
