The Emergency Committee of the National Assembly is planning to submit a number of new open-minded recommendations to the Council of Ministers for appropriate decisions following the positive COVID-19 pandemic indicators the country has been experiencing during the past few days, reports Al- Qabas daily.

The daily said, with the continuous decrease in Corona infections and the high recovery rate to 98.5% and the decline in the number of infection cases, the Committee will discuss during its next meeting, which precedes the Cabinet meeting, a number of recommendations that pave the way for the return of full life without any health restrictions.

The sources said that one of the most prominent recommendations is to do away with the PCR test for all students and teachers, and to allow people to enter closed places, such as theaters and cinemas without the need to obtain the PCR test with emphasis on checking the temperature, disinfecting places and following precautionary measures.

There is also a commendation to cancel the decision to give booster after the passage 9 months after receiving the second dose, which means making the third dose optional, and using the green color on the vaccination certificate for those who took the two doses.

The sources explained that the time to encourage and raise awareness of vaccination will gradually end in the next stage.

The most important recommendations expected to be introduced include making wearing of face mask optional, with the recommendation of its importance; return of the green color on certificates of those who have received the two doses; gradual easing of unvaccinated restrictions at the airport; the return of Jaber Hospital to receive patients and perform operations and adoption of a new treatment (Paxlovid) soon after its arrival.
