The Ministry of Health in the Kurdistan Regional Government on Tuesday warned of the dangers of an increase in the rate of coronavirus infections, stressing that the health conditions are very dangerous.


"Unfortunately, the Kurdistan Region is going through very serious health conditions, and the intensive care lobbies have lost their ability to absorb those infected with the virus," a spokesman for the Ministry of Health,  Aso Hweizi, said during a press conference


"The high rate of infections and deaths from the virus in the Kurdistan Region is constantly increasing, and this is a dangerous indicator, and unfortunately, there is a neglect of health instructions by citizens."


He pointed out that the high rate of infection with the virus is what prompted the Supreme Committee to Combat Coronavirus to take decisions to tighten preventive measures.


Yesterday, the Kurdistan Region has recorded 1,045 new positive cases of coronavirus, raising the total number to 126,191 in the region.


Last Tuesday, the Supreme Committee to Combat Coronavirus in the Kurdistan Region announced the suspension of official working hours on Thursday every week in government departments and institutions, while it imposed a ban on movement with other Iraqi governorates 3 days of every week.
