Mohamed Rabhi, head of the health quarantine commission at the health ministry assured that the cancellation of the compulsory isolation for Tunisians resident abroad amounts to the lack of means of the State which can no longer bear the cost of accommodation.
Speaking to Jawhara FM, he affirmed that a series of measures had been taken, including the presentation of a document attesting that they had been tested 72 hours before their arrival and that its result was negative. “The solution remains in the hands of citizens and depends on their conscience. All those who violate the measures of self-isolation will be prosecuted. In the event of serious overruns, the compulsory quarantine measure will be re-imposed ”.
As for tourists, Mohamed Rabhi said that all precautions have been taken, including a particularised touristic circuit and the implementation of a rigorous health protocol in hotels.
