DON’T BE RECKLESS! Compliance with rules crucial says Health Minister

MANAMA: Bahrain’s health minister yesterday warned that recklessness of some is the direct cause of the recent spike in Covid cases.

Caseload will continue to surge if those irresponsible people continue with their complacency and recklessness, Faeqa Al Saleh said.

The minister urged full compliance with the mandatory precautionary measures to curb the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.

This follows an increase in the daily number of new cases in the country which has increased to an average of more than 600 cases from 330 two weeks back.

The minister called on everyone to show determination and resolve, more than ever before, and adhere fully to the instructions of the National Taskforce for Combating Covid-19 for two weeks, until October 1, to reduce infection rates.

She paid tribute to His Royal Highness Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, Crown Prince, Deputy Supreme Commander and First Deputy Premier, and praised his support to strenuous efforts by the medical frontliners who are striving to protect citizens and residents.

She commended the Crown Prince’s call to comply with the mandatory precautionary measures and putting the interest of the homeland above all else.

“This commitment is crucial to continue implementing the plans which were put in place to deal with the virus in all its stages.”

She outlined Bahrain’s steps, since the outbreak of the pandemic, to protect people’s health and mitigate its fallout, urging all sides to take part in raising public awareness, describing compliance to mandatory measures a collective social responsibility.

She also reiterated health professionals’ resolve to continue relentless efforts to combat Covid-19 and implement the Crown Prince’s call for Bahrain to overcome the challenges.

Meanwhile, Salmaniya Medical Complex’s infection control department chief nurse Tahira Anwar said that the ministry has taken all pre-emptive and precautionary measures to ensure the safety of health workers and patients ever since the outbreak started.
