The National Taskforce for Combating the Coronavirus (COVID-19) today held a press conference highlighting updates on national efforts and strategies to prevent the spread of COVID-19,




at the Crown Prince Centre for Training and Medical Research at the Bahrain Defence Force (BDF) Hospital.

The Chief Executive of the Information & eGovernment Authority (iGA), HE Mohammed Ali Al Qaed, affirmed that the Kingdom’s efforts aimed at containing the spread of COVID-19, led by HRH the Crown Prince, are designed to safeguard the health and safety of citizen and residents.

HE Al Qaed noted the iGA’s technical contributions to COVID-19 containment efforts, adding that the “BeAware” app has been officially launched following the success of its beta version, which has been tested by patients and volunteers across the Kingdom.

On this note, HE Al Qaed further added that the innovative app is a mandatory download for individuals undergoing treatment and observation, as it provides the relevant authorities with the opportunity to follow-up with patients under treatment or self-isolation.

HE Al Qaed then directed all to download the app, which utilises location data to alert individuals in the event they approach an active case or a location that an active case has visited,

while providing health guidelines and recommendations and highlighting local and global COVID-19 developments.

HE Al Qaed concluded by emphasising the iGA’s continued commitment to supporting relevant entities in working remotely, in line with directives issued by the Government’s Executive Committee,



chaired by HRH the Crown Prince, adding that the iGA has provided technical solutions and e-facilities to ensure government ministries and authorities use safe internal systems and web networks.
