Acting Prime Minister, Ramadan Abujanah, stressed the necessity of raising the salaries of workers in the health sector according to professionally applicable situations.

Abujanah concurred with several health sector officials on Sunday to provide rapid tests and swabs for the Coronavirus within a maximum period of no less than two weeks, to provide them at land and airports, in order to detect suspected cases amongst incoming travellers, particularly with the threat of the new Omicron strain.

The attendees also agreed to develop an integrated plan to overcome the potential crisis through holding an extended meeting that included the ministries of education, interior, economy and the General Authority for Awqaf and Islamic Affairs during the next week, to set a precautionary program in place.
