Council of ministers: Gradual lifting of lockdown in public works sector

ALGIERS- The Council of ministers, met Sunday under the chairmanship of President of the Republic Abdelmadjid Tebboune, decided the gradual lifting of lockdown in the sector of building and public works according to a plan developed by the Prime minister’s Office in collaboration with the Ministry of Health and the scientific Committee.

It was also decided to examine with the social partners “the appropriate method to gradually lift the lockdown for some trades and commercial activities with low risks of Covid-19 spreading, in addition to activities with a direct impact on the citizens’ lives after a long cessation” as well as “possibilities to support affected small traders, including their possible partial exemption form taxes.”

In this respect, President of the Republic said he is “satisfied with the gradual improvement in the fight against the spread of the coronavirus pandemic, stressing the need to respect the prevention measures, particularly the wearing of protection masks and the respect of the physical distancing.”

While hailing “the sacrifices of the health staffs,” President of the Republic expressed his “personal admiration for them and the Nation’s gratitude to their sacrifices,” underlining that they represent “the symbol of sacrifice and that Algeria is proud of them and will never forget them.”

President of the Republic called on citizens “to continue respecting the prevention measures in order to support the results that have been obtained so far,” exhorting the governors of provinces where the lockdown was totally lifted “to closely monitor the situation and make sure to respect these measures, notably the ban on gatherings, weddings and parties.”

For his part, Minister of Health, Population and Hospital Reform Abderrahmane Benbouzid made a presentation on “the stability of the health situation in the country allowing the resumption of health activities in hospitals.”
