Health Ministry Revises COVID-19 Directive

The Ministry of Health has made revisions to a directive introduced to regulate the prevention and control of the COVID-19 pandemic. Officials say the revision is a result of the need to focus on precautionary measures and vaccinations. Health professionals have administered close to 29.5 million doses of various COVID-19 jabs since the Ministry kicked off a vaccination campaign a year ago. The revised directive eschews requirements for face masks in outdoor areas with sufficient air circulation. However, rules compelling passengers and drivers on public transport to wear the face masks remain in place. Close to 470,000 cases have been registered since March 2020, while 7,500 people have lost their lives to the pandemic.
