Bahrain has issued a stimulus package of $11.4 billion (29.6% of the country's GDP) to counter the COVID-19 economic impact. This includes a draft law to pay private sector salaries, and to pay utility bills for individuals and businesses for three months.
Face masks are mandatory in all public venues in Bahrain, and the King Fahd causeway connecting Bahrain and Saudi Arabia remains closed to non-commercial traffic. Whilst ensuring health and social distancing guidelines are followed, all salons and hair barbers reopened on 27 May.
As of 22 June, Bahrain reported a total of 21,764 cases of COVID-19 with 16,419 recovered and 64 deaths. Its Ministry of Health has set up a 24-hour national hotline service (which can be reached by dialing 444) to report suspected or confirmed cases, or for any questions about COVID-19 in English or Arabic.
