Release of red, orange, yellow and green zones on Covid-19 infections based on active cases and not just cumulative data most welcome and meaningful as it will enable residents to strive for their districts to become Covid-19-free green zones

The “warm water” Health Minister, Dr. Adham Baba has made the situation worse with his unbelievable explanation about his “500 countries” blooper.

Adham said he had mistakenly said 500 countries, when what he meant was 500 participants from around the word.

This seems to be quite a whopper, for a meeting with 500 participants will go against one of the most important rules of Covid-19 era – social distancing.

Let Adham give details and provide evidence of such a conference or video meeting where there were 500 participants.

If he cannot do so, may be he should tender his resignation from the Cabinet.

There will be universal approval, not only in the country but outside, if the Health director-general Dr. Noor Hisham Abdullah replaces him as Health Minister.
