The Ministry of Health has issued a circular to airports and health authorities in the country regarding lifting of ban on travel to countries affected by Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS). The decision came in line with the World Health Organisation (WHO)'s travel recommendations which have removed countries affected by the deadly virus from its travel advisory list.



Dr Mahmoud Fekri, Assistant Under-Secretary for Preventive Medicine Department told Khaleej Times yesterday, that the ministry had asked the officials at the entry points, the Dubai Health Department and the General Authority for Health Service for the Emirate of Abu Dhabi (GHAS) to take necessary steps to lift the ban on travellers from areas affected by the epidemic.
