A number of Palestinian doctors led Friday prayers in several mosques across the Gaza Strip to spread awareness about the coronavirus.

This came after a joint announcement made by the Ministry of Health and the Endowment Ministry in Gaza, stating that doctors would lead the Friday prayers in order to raise awareness about the coronavirus among the Gaza residents.

The doctors wore their work uniforms while they led the prayers, and informed of recent information regarding the virus, and explained how to protect from the virus.
