MOH to carry out Covid risk assessment next month

THE Health Ministry (MOH) will carry out a risk assessment of Covid-19 infection next month following an announcement by the World Health Organisation (WHO) that the epidemic is no longer categorised as a global health emergency.

Its minister Dr Zaliha Mustafa said the assessment is necessary to review local areas of infection, which will expire on June 30, and to help the government determine the next steps involving the latest protection measures against the disease.
