• An additional 289 patients have recovered from the disease.

The special health clinics set up by the Ministry of Health in response to the pandemic continue to test and treat thousands of residents. Takkad (make sure) centers and Tetamman (rest assured) clinics have played a significant role in monitoring the spread of the disease and helping patients with suspected or confirmed cases.
The Takkad centers offer COVID-19 testing for people with no or mild symptoms, or who believe they have come in contact with someone who is infected. Tetamman clinics provide treatment and advice to those with more severe symptoms such as fever, loss of taste and smell and breathing difficulties.
The ministry and other authorities continue to highlight the importance of maintaining social distancing and following all health and safety protocols as part of the community effort to slow the spread of the disease.
