Bahrain's Manama Souq sterilised to combat coronavirus

Manama Souq has been sterilised as part of a campaign to tackle the spread of coronavirus in Bahrain.

The main streets and roads around Bab al Bahrain were sprayed with disinfectants. The campaign was launched in cooperation with the Capital Governorate and the Police Directorate.

Bahrain’s disinfection campaign launched at the start of April, with more than 300 individuals trained to help complete the programme.

Cleaning companies from across the Kingdom are taking part, and are sterilising areas according to local and international standards.

Bahrain has been taking a number of precautionary measures in recent weeks, including making face masks in public compulsory.

While some restrictions have been relaxed, the government has urged residents to continue social distancing to curb the spread of the disease.

The Kingdom also released a contact tracing app, which has helped identify more than 200 cases so far.
