(TAP) - No cases of COVID-19 infection have been reported in mosques, official at the Ministry of Religious Affairs Sami Guesmi said on Saturday, commending the precautionary measures taken in worship places to prevent the spread of the pandemic.


In a statement to TAP, Guesmi underlined that the decision to close down mosques in case of reporting infection cases in any region is not under the prerogative of the Religious Affairs Department.


This decision, he specified, depends mainly on the scientific and medical committees set up in each governorate, adding in this regard, that Friday prayers have recently been suspended in all mosques of the delegation of El Hamma, governorate of Gabes as well as in some mosques of the delegation of Jebeniana, in Sfax.
