In this context, it is stressed that the application of preventive measures and measures must continue to be implemented in the stages of gradually lifting the imposed restrictions that were applied in the country as a result of the spread of the COVID-19, as failure to adhere to precautionary measures during the next stage will lead to the return of the virus to the country.
