For his part, the spokesman for the Ministry of the Interior in Gaza confirmed that the Gaza Strip is still living in a dangerous stage, and injuries are still recorded in the dozens on a daily basis, and this remains an indicator of danger, but we balance between two difficult options: facing the virus, continuing aspects of life and meeting the needs of citizens.
He stressed that the full commitment to safety and prevention measures is the point of view until we pass the stage, reduce the risks, and preserve the lives of the Palestinian people.
He added, “We still face difficulties in adhering to safety and preventive measures by citizens, and this is very dangerous and we may soon reap the benefits due to the lack of many citizens.”
He stressed that Gaza has not yet returned to normal life, and there are still many aspects of life disrupted, and we will not be able to return completely as long as we do not find a commitment from the citizens.
He pointed out that the mitigation measures do not mean that we have passed the stage of danger that is still present, and that prevention and safety measures must be transformed into daily behavior for citizens for a long time.
He added: “Our battle with the epidemic is long, and we are entering the winter season, which requires more care to take safety and prevention measures for everyone.”
