Residents are urged to communicate with their loved ones using phones and social media.

Dr Farida said, "The national sterilization programme will be implemented during the weekend, which is the period that is usually allocated for social occasions and visits, but the current circumstances make it necessary for us to avoid gatherings, and to communicate with family and friends by phone or using social media."

She said, "Social distancing is very important during the current period, and this means individuals must avoid all gatherings including family events, desert outings, etc."
