Establishing strict health guidelines paramount – Hakeem
Establishing strict health guidelines and regulations to stop the fast-spreading COVID-19 virus was highlighted in a statement released yesterday (13) by SLMC Leader, MP Rauff Hakeem, who commemorated the end of the holy month of Ramadan.
“We are duty-bound more than ever before to strictly follow health regulations, amidst closure of schools, universities, commercial sites, affecting lives and livelihoods of our people,” Hakeem said.
He added that the SLMC keeps the global Muslim community, who are suffering from political turmoil, injustice, embargos, poverty and famine amidst the pandemic, in their prayers, and said that they pray for a better and brighter future for the entire world.
“Unlike in the past year, 2020, the morphing strains of the fastspreading coronavirus is irking our communities more virulently this year. We are drawn to seek God’s protection and mercy even more fervently today for relief for our communities and for return to normalcy,” he said. (ST)
