HE Dr Ahmed bin Mohammed al Sa’eedi, Minister of Health, has said the government did what was necessary, provided the information, and set up fines, but people need to show social, moral, religious, and national responsibility.
“There is a need for people to act responsibly. If someone comes to a workplace and is not bound by the precautionary measures or was supposed to be in isolation, you must report it, and in this way, you protect society from harm,” h E Dr Sa’eedi said.
“Some people are too reckless, though they have been advised to avoid gatherings at homes and among families. There are those who play football on beaches and crowd in commercial centres. These acts are still dangerous,” he added.
H E Dr Sa’eedi said that despite the recovery and the disappearance of symptoms from some of the organs, there are reports that that the virus still stays in some parts of the body and needs months to fully recover. “Please do not underestimate (the disease) and be careful always,” he said.
