Bahrain ‘free of MERS coronavirus’

Manama, September 8, 2013

Bahrain has not registered any case of the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) coronavirus, said a top official.

Public Health Department director Dr Mariam Al Hajri highlighted the Health Ministry’s readiness to deal with any case and said an integrated system has been set up linking health centres to the public health laboratory to follow up suspected cases.

Dr Al Hajri said the situation does not require any extra precautionary steps or strict health control measures at the kingdom’s access ports, according to a report in our sister publication the Gulf Daily News.

She said the ministry has taken all health and awareness measures before the Haj season, and called on all pilgrims to take vaccines available at all health centres. – TradeArabia News Service
