The health situation in the country is stable and assuring, he said, citing latest statements by the health officials affirming that infections with the virus were low, that ICUs wards were not occupied and that there no more fatalities.

However, "We ought to be cautious and abstain from being complacent with respect of applying the health terms," he warned.

He disclosed that the committee during today's meeting decided to tighten constraints after receiving reports about some lax in measures' adherence at some facilities, noting that the tasked personnel at a number of shopping malls, stores and hotels were not strict in ensuring that visitors put on masks and check whether they had been vaccinated.
