Manama, Feb. 24(BNA): The Ministry of Health has called for an immediate compliance with the health guidelines set out, alongside other precautionary efforts the Ministry continues to take, in order to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19).
The Ministry of Health, in coordination with related entities, has ensured the readiness of all health workers, in response to the first confirmed case in the Kingdom following a citizen's return from Iran carrying the virus. All necessary medical precautions, including monitoring those who have been in contact with the patient, have been taken.
Citizens can help prevent the spread of infections by washing their hands thoroughly with soap, refraining from close interactions such as shaking hands, hugging or kissing, in addition to covering their mouths and noses with a tissue while sneezing or sneezing into the crook of their elbow.
The Ministry noted that the immune system, which is at the core of health and wellness, can be strengthened through exercise, a healthy diet, adequate sleep, vaccinations, drinking plenty of water to avoid dehydration, not smoking and avoiding stress.
All citizens and residents who have travelled to or have interacted with those who have travelled to a country affected by COVID-19, or are experiencing symptoms, including fever, coughing or difficulty breathing, should immediately quarantine themselves, call 444, and follow the instructions given by the medical team.
