The Ministry of Public Health (MOPH) has decided to allow health practitioners operating in the private sector to work in public hospitals, in addition to their parent duty for six months.

In its issued circular, MOPH stated that the decision comes within the framework of the efforts exerted by MOPH to intensify all preventive and precautionary measures to curb the spread of the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and control it. This also comes to achieve the public interest that requires full preparation to provide all healthcare and remedial services in a greater and quicker manner to confront the pandemic. This decision is in line with the provisions of Decree Law No. 17 of 1990 on Protection from Infectious Diseases that has been also amended under Law No. 9 of 2020.
