Shaheed Al-Hafed, 8 May 2020 (SPS) -The Sahrawi National Committee for the prevention and monitoring of the novel coronavirus pandemic said Saturday that “no confirmed case” has been reported in the Sahrawi refugee camps or in the liberated territories.  
In a communiqué issued by the Ministry of Public Health, the Committee called on citizens to respect the measures already taken to prevent the spread of the epidemic in the Saharawi refugee camps.
"To date, no case of Covid-19 has been recorded in the refugee camps or in the liberated areas of Western Sahara, hence the need for more vigilance and seriousness in complying with preventive measures to keep the region firmly free of infections. Mask wearing is also mandatory," the Committee said.
It also stressed "the importance of respecting personal hygiene measures on a continuous basis and pay particular attention to domestic and environmental hygiene (hand washing, domestic ventilation, cleaning around you)".
"Focus on taking all necessary precautions to prevent coronavirus and respect social distancing," stressed the Committee. (SPS)
