Undersecretary at the Ministry of Health highlights repatriation efforts

Dr Waleed Al Manea, Undersecretary at the Ministry of Health, today made a statement regarding the repatriation of Bahraini citizens.

His Excellency emphasised that the Ministry is committed to protecting all citizens and residents, noting that the department is taking all necessary measures to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.

The Undersecretary also outlined the coordination taking place with Omani authorities to organise the repatriation of Bahraini citizens currently in Muscat.

Al Manea added that a chartered flight is currently being scheduled for the citizens who arrived in Muscat from Iran via Doha.

Al Manea highlighted that the returning citizens will be subject to vigorous containment protocols upon arrival to Bahrain, in line with existing measures in place for individuals arriving from countries affected by the virus.

Dr. Al Manea underscored the strict preventive efforts that the Kingdom is enacting to mitigate the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), which requires all arriving passengers to test for COVID-19; a test that will determine whether they require treatment or quarantine, in accordance with the World Health Organization’s recommendations.

Dr. Al Manea concluded by highlighting the progress of repatriation, noting that the Ministry is working with a range of authorities to expedite the safe return of citizens.
