Shafaq News/ The head of al-Sulaymaniyah's local government, Haval Abu Bakar, dismissed "total lockdown" to curb the spread of COVID-19's  Delts variant.

"Reimposing total curfew is not a solution to confront the pandemic," Abu Bakar said in a statement to media reporters, "the citizens' compliance with the health instructions and preventive measures is more important."

Abu Bakar stressed upon securing larger amounts of COVID-19 vaccines and increasing the daily count of PCR COVID-19 tests, hinting at a growing effort in al-Sulaymaniyah in this regard.
