Eid ul Adha 2020: Guidelines for prevention of coronavirus


Can’t connect right now!retryThe NIH has made the face masks mandatory for all those coming to purchase the sacrifical animal and the sellers at the cattle markets.

The National Institute of Health, in a bid to curb the spread of coronavirus, has issued the guidelines for Eid-ul-Azha, which will be observed on August 1 (Saturday).

”The animal markets to be set up around the time of Eid must adhere to these guidelines for social distancing and protective measures to be practised for preventing the spread of infection among the sellers and buyers and to ensure the safe Eid during the COVID 19 outbreak,” the document issued read.

The NIH also said that the masses should keep their travelling minimum and refrain from crowding the markets as was witnessed during Ramazan.

“Every person should bring his own prayer mat for Eid prayers,” the advisory stated and discouraged children and the elderly from attending the prayers.

Social distancing at animal markets/mandees

Local Authority

  • The local authorities should encourage the trend of online buying, e-selling and slaughter arrangements of the animals as much as possible in there cities/towns
  • The authorities should allocate large enough spaces away from general populated areas for animal markets/mandees
  • Local authority must get the markets set under their supervision while allocating the space to the animal vendors strictly following physical/social distancing principals
  • Local authority must ensure that every individual visiting the market (buyer/seller) must wear face mask as per the government’s orders. Those without face masks would not be allowed within the market/ mandee
  • Local authority must ensure the availability of thermal guns at entrance and allow customers only after checking temperature
  • Local authority must designate an individual at the entrance and exit of the market with alcohol-based hand sanitizer (at least 70% alcohol) who must make sure each customer sanitises his hand before entering and while leaving the market
  • Do not allow the customer with cough and flu to enter the market
  • To ensure the space does not get crowded, allow people to enter the market only in small groups at intervals
  • Local authority must inspect the adherence to the guidelines by the sellers and buyers during the business hours
  • Ensure the public display of notices promoting hand hygiene and social distancing
  • A medical aid post/first aid post should be identified for medical advice if needed by the customers/sellers within close proximity of the animal market/mandee

Animal vendors/ sellers

  • Every seller must wear the face mask as per the government’s order
  • The seller should wash hands with soap and water frequently or use an alcohol-based (70%) hand sanitizer

  • Seller and customers should maintain the safe distance of 2 meters among each other
  • Seller and customer must not shake hands or maintain any other physical contact
  • The seller must keep a disinfection formulation with 0.5% diluted bleach or 60%-80% dilute alcohol solution to disinfect the most frequently used surfaces by the customers
  • Each salesperson must ensure the use of gloves for touching the animals
  • Any seller, if sick or have symptoms such as cough, fever etc., is not allowed to sell animals in the market. He must arrange a replacement for him otherwise he is not allowed to be present personally

Social distancing and infection prevention & control during slaughtering of animals

General prevention measures

The preventive measures that should be followed during slaughtering activity are:

  • The site of slaughtering should be away from general public and living areas
  • Crowding at slaughtering should be avoided, only necessary persons should be allowed to be present at the site
  • Practice physical distancing. Maintain a minimum 2-meter distance
  • Promote good respiratory hygiene. Cough or sneeze into bent elbows. If not, a disposable tissue should be used to cover mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing, then thrown in a bin with a lid. Perform hand hygiene after disposal
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose or mouth, especially when hands are not clean
  • Use gloves and masks. PPE provides a barrier to protect the person from potential exposure to hazards
  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for 40-60 seconds. If soap and water are not available, rub your hands for 20-30 seconds with an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains 60-80% alcohol

General cleaning and disinfecting principles

Environmental cleaning and disinfection procedures should be followed consistently and correctly before and after the slaughtering of animals.

  • Cleaning with detergent and water, followed by rinsing and drying, is the most useful method for removing germs from surfaces. Enveloped viruses, including the one causing COVID-19, are sensitive to detergents. Detergents help to loosen the germs so that they can be rinsed away with clean water
  • Disinfecting or using chemicals to kill germs on surfaces, can further lower the risk of spreading infection. After applying a disinfectant, wait for the required exposure time to ensure it kills germs on the surface. Once the contact time has lapsed, the disinfectant may be rinsed with clean water
  • Where possible, use disposable cloths/ towels and disposable mop heads. Alternatively, ensure used cloths and mop heads are laundered and dried after use to minimize contamination

General preventive measures for Eid prayers

  • Separate entrances and exits should be made in a one-way system to prevent bottlenecks
  • Thermal screening for all worshippers at entry points of eidgah
  • Hand sanitizer at entrances/exits, making it mandatory for all people to use it before entering and after exiting
  • Every person should wear face/surgical mask
  • Mark out prayer spaces clearly using measuring instruments to make social distancing of 6 feets easy to follow
  • Worshippers should bring their own prayer mats
  • Encourage people to perform wudhu at home
  • People must maintain social distancing by keeping 2 meters distance between each other, and every other row should be left empty to allow for 2 meters spacing in all directions
  • Discourage the sick & elderly and children under 15 years of age from attending prayers
  • Discourage the socializing and embracing within the eidgah after prayers
  • Allocate COVID-19 safety officer on both male and female side

Eid Prayers in Mosques

  • Screening for all worshippers at gate of mosques
  • Provision of hand sanitizer at gate of mosques
  • The waiting time between the call to prayer and the actual prayer is limited to 10 minutes in order to avoid overcrowding.
  • Mosques must close no later than 10 minutes after the prayer ends.
  • Imams should deliver the sermons on the topic of the virus and preventative measures that government of Pakistan has taken in order to slow the spread to give individuals an active role in promoting the health and safety of the members of society
