Erbil to open Mosques in the holy month of Ramadan

Shafaq News / The Governor of Erbil, Omid Khushnaw, said on Tuesday that COVID-19 preventive measures were tightened to limit the virus's spread.

Khushnaw told reporters today that due to the surge in the number of cases, the Supreme Committee to Combat COVID-19 and the Erbil operation command had the intention to impose a total lockdown, but only eased the restrictions in consideration of the living conditions of the citizens.

He added that during the month of Ramadan, social communication will increase, so preventive measures must be adhered to.

"We opened the doors of mosques to Muslims because of the peculiarity this month holds, and people go to mosques frequently to pray, so it was decided only to tighten preventive measures", he pointed out.

Gotiar Adel, a spokesman for the Kurdistan Regional Government and the Committee, said in a press conference that the Kurdish government institutions will open next Thursday.
