Dubai is planning to reopen mosques with restrictions soon. 90,000 mosques in Saudi Arabia will be opening its doors again on Sunday. Many here in the Gulf see the decision to reopen mosques as a litmus test for authorities when it comes to keeping new #COVID19 cases in check.

Not sure where was this filmed but these masks will surely be in high demand. https://t.co/d7v24j0oxl

Pakistan International Airlines plane has crashed in Karachi on flight from Lahore, officials say https://t.co/Px3HEJi4AR

"Facebook will now let some employees work from anywhere, but their paychecks could get cut." Not sure if this can be implemented successfully in the long term. How many people would be willing to work for a lower salary, in order to work from home? https://t.co/L6hYfgoy4W

The survey covered over 1300 companies - most of them were firms with less than 20 employees & it was conducted in April, when there was a complete shutdown. Over the last few weeks, commercial activities have restarted but even then, 70% is staggering. https://t.co/PS3ezeQ1dG

Munich airport, it's as quiet as a chapel. Operational, but only just. https://t.co/1wu7U6Mv81

Historic : #UAE based - #Etihad Airways is going to fly to #Israel making it the first known/official direct commercial flight between the two nations. The flight will carry aid for the Palestinians amid the coronavirus pandemic. #Covid_19

#Uber is going to cut additional 3000 jobs and close 45 offices. The decision comes just two weeks after they had announced 3700 job cuts. In less than a month, it has slashed nearly a quarter of its workforce. And the firm doesn't count drivers as employees. #COVID19

The total number of coronavirus cases in Saudi Arabia are inching closer to 60,000. The new infection rate has remained over the 2000 mark for the last 4 days ➡️2,593 new cases ➡️57,345 total cases ➡️8 new deaths ➡️320 - death toll #COVID19

Tragic & Barbaric. It's estimated that 1,000 'honour' killings take place in Pakistan each year but there are no official statistics around them, as they often go unreported or are logged as a suicide/natural death by family members. https://t.co/nYn1XhdZcx

The power of a silent protest. Medics turned their backs as Belgium’s prime minister arrived at a hospital. The reception was in response to the government’s approach towards the medical health care workers amid the ongoing #COVID19 crisis. #coronavirus https://t.co/LxdTN1nmVG
