The Ministry of Interior in Mauritania announced today, Saturday, the easing of the restrictions imposed by it due to the spread of the Corona (also known as COVID-19) pandemic, by lifting the ban on concert hall activities.
The ministry said in a statement that lifting the ban on concert halls comes “in view of the positive development observed regarding the decline in the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic.”
It added that this development is also based on “a decision from the ministerial committee in charge of following up on the pandemic.”
The ministry affirmed that lifting the ban on banquet halls is accompanied by the imposition of observance of the precautionary measures, and the implementation of the curfew decision in effect from midnight until six in the morning.”
The ban on concert halls began with the second wave of the pandemic in November last year, while some restrictions remain in effect, such as a partial curfew.
Yesterday, Friday, the Ministry of Health recorded 18 new cases of the virus, 12 people were cured, and no deaths were recorded due to the disease
On the other hand, Israeli media reported an increase in the number of countries that Tel Aviv plans to provide them with Coronavirus vaccines in exchange for diplomatic support.
Public Radio Kan reported that the list now includes 19 countries, while Army Radio stated that it includes 20 countries.
Among the countries that are said to be provided with vaccines are is Mauritania, which does not maintain diplomatic relations with Israel.
The northwest African country became the third country in the Arab League to establish diplomatic relations with Israel in 1999, but it cut ties a decade later during the Gaza war of 2008-2009.
US officials told The Times of Israel last month that Mauritania was on the verge of normalizing relations with Israel before US President Donald Trump’s term ends.
