Coronavirus : President Tebboune urges further solidarity, discipline in Ramadan

ALGIERS – President of the Republic Abdelmadjid Tebboune on Thursday urged Algerians “to show further solidarity, mutual help, discipline, patience and vigilance” to contain the new coronavirus pandemic (Covid-19).

 “In this blessed night, I urged you to show further solidarity, mutual help, discipline, patience and vigilance. I also call those who do not comply with preventive measures to stop their dangerous behaviours that will only extend the sanitary lockdown and endanger our fellow-citizens and our homeland,” wrote the President of the Republic in a message to the Algerian people on the eve of the Holy month of Ramdan.

“We managed to limit the propagation of the pandemic and I gave instruction to reconsider the sanitary lockdown measures depending on the situation on the spot. The better the indicators improve the closer we get to a return to normal life,” he continued.

“The solidarity and mutual help our people have always shown in each key step of their History encourage us to transform this crisis into an opportunity for a new start and a new reflection that lead to a break with obsolete practices that have hindered the emergence of the creative potential of our youth, diverted from the path of edification to be tipped into despair and hopelessness,” stressed the Head of State.
