Bahrain: Spike in cases may cause the return of previous protocols!

The National Medical Taskforce for Combating the Coronavirus (COVID-19) today highlighted that the number of active COVID-19 cases has increased over the past two weeks, surpassing 750 cases on some of the previous days, due to non-compliance of health and precautionary guidelines during the Ashura holidays.

The Taskforce stressed that continued non-compliance with health and precautionary measures has a negative repercussion on society and negative impact on the Kingdom’s efforts which have been praised internationally. In the event that the number of existing cases continues to increase, decisions based on data and developments will be reviewed and a return to procedures from the previous stages to mitigate the spread of the virus may be required.
