Top-level Bahrain meeting to discuss updated steps to prevent Covid-19 outbreak


An urgent meeting will be held tomorrow between ministers, senior government officials and MPs to discuss updated measures to prevent the outbreak of Novel Coronavirus (Covid-19) in Bahrain.

The meeting at the National Assembly Complex will be headed by Parliament chairwoman Fouzia Zainal.

It follows after the World Health Organisation yesterday officially declared Covid-19 as a pandemic.

Meanwhile, an urgent proposal was submitted yesterday by 18 MPs to delay the return of Bahrainis from countries affected by Covid-19.

The issue will now be raised during Parliament session next week.

“We fear a disaster could come our way as our medical facilities cannot cope with more positive cases,” stated the proposal.

“We call for a delay in the return of citizens from the affected areas, as the government deals with active cases in the country."
