The fourth wave of Covid-19 in Libya is ebbing, the Director of the National Centre for Disease Control, Haider Al-Sayeh, has confirmed, indicating that it was less damaging than the third wave.

The NCDC head lauded all who worked to confront the pandemic, saying they had a significant role in the receding of this wave.

"Some of them returned to work and ended their sit-in in response to the centre's call, but they are now waiting for their rewards and rights that we failed to pay."

According to Al-Sayeh, the broadly expanded Covid-19 vaccinations, which continued over the past year, had also led to the improvement of the epidemiological situation, noting that easing or continuing with some precautionary measures depends on the progress of the vaccination process.

As Ramadan approaches, Al-Sayeh said they are considering easing measures on Mosques during this holy month depending on the stability of the epidemiological situation and the progress of the vaccination campaigns.

He pointed out that schools may return to giving daily classes starting next semester.
