Two per cent of travellers tested positive in March and April, says medic

Measures put in place to test passengers arriving into Bahrain have proved effective with a few cases registered among travellers, it has been revealed.

Only two per cent of travellers tested positive for Covid-19 in both March and April, Health Ministry Under-Secretary Dr Waleed Al Manea said.

“Procedures set for checking travellers upon arrival and on the fifth and 10th day and adding a pre-examination certificate (PCR) for those arriving from some destinations provide the required levels of safety.”

He said Bahrain’s objective is to reduce fatalities and infections and achieve herd immunity.

“People are urged to get vaccinated and exercise caution while worshipping or visiting restaurants, hotels or shopping malls,” he said.

Dr Manea was speaking at a Press conference organized by the National Taskforce to Combat the Coronavirus today.
