Bahrain’s Efforts in Combatting COVID-19 Praised by WHO Director

Director General of the World Health Organisation (WHO), Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, praised the efforts of the Kingdom of Bahrain in supporting the organisation’s role in facing Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

He lauded the kingdom’s remarkable role in curbing the spread of the virus by taking effective preventive measures. He also praised Bahrain’s solidarity with the other member states of the organisation in taking comprehensive measures and unifying efforts to quickly find the necessary treatment.

It is worth noting that Bahrain has taken proactive precautionary measures to mitigate the spread of the virus by implementing the highest tracking standards to know the details of the impact of contacts. Bahrain has also made efforts to increase the capacity of hospitals, precautionary quarantine centers, and isolation and treatment centers. It has also increased the number of laboratory tests, intensive care equipment, and personal protective equipment. A complete plan was also drawn up to recruit, qualify and train the necessary manpower. It succeeded in handling cases and improving therapeutic capacity, as demonstrated by effective treatment protocols in the Kingdom of Bahrain which helped in treating a large number of existing cases.
