CAIRO, April 7 (MENA) - The Awqaf Ministry warned again against the non-abidance by its clear-cut instructions to shut all mosques and the suspension of congressional prayers as a precautionary measure to stem the spread of coronavirus pandemic.

In a statement on Tuesday, the ministry stressed that any person who violates these measures will be held accountable, making it clear that the current circumstance does not tolerate any degree of neglect.

The ministry also warned of deliberately opening the mosque for anyone to enter into it, emphasising that it would fire any imams who violate its instructions.

Some coronavirus cases around the world have been linked to religious gatherings.
