    TUNIS - The Mufti of the Tunisian Republic, Othman Battikh, said the Covid vaccine will not interrupt the fasting of the sacred month of Ramadan, which is scheduled to start in the middle of April.

    He invited all Tunisians to continue to participate in the national vaccination campaign and get vaccinated even during the month of Ramadan.

    In a statement on the Facebook page of the office of Al Iftaa that he chairs, Battikh explained that the vaccines are not "nutritional products" and therefore the vaccine is not incompatible with fasting.

    The highest religious authority of Tunisia also highlighted that getting vaccinated to protect oneself and others is a religious and national duty.

    According to the latest data from the Tunisian health ministry, over 50,000 people have already received their first vaccine dose.

    The national vaccination campaign started on 13 March.
