Bahrain’s disinfection programme begins

Bahrain’s disinfection programme has begun, the Director-General of Civil Defence has announced.

Cleaning companies from across the Kingdom have been trained by the civil defence team to disinfect areas in the governorates according to local and international standards.

There are around 322 individuals from private companies taking part in the process.

The disinfection process is part of a number of precautionary measures the government of Bahrain is taking to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).

Earlier this week, an app that tracks where active cases have been and alerts anyone who comes into close contact with someone with the virus launched.

A number of steps have been taken on public transport too, with passengers encouraged to use hand sanitiser before and after boarding, as well as not sitting next to one another.

MPs have also approved a partial curfew that would see people remain in their homes between 6pm and 5am, but there has been no indication as to when this could come into force.
