He asked people to take precautionary measures, wear masks, and practice social distancing, especially at big gatherings.

"Indoor weddings will not be allowed. Restaurants, factories and mosques will not be closed. The prime minister said that mosques should practice SOPs, the same way that they did before."

He said that the schools are not being closed but the situation will be monitored for a week. If a decision is made to close schools, authorities will extend the winter vacations and compensate with shorter summer vacations.
