Bahrain has announced it would cancel the 10-day home self-isolation protocol for all people entering the country.

That's according to the country's health ministry, which added that a new procedure of double testing will come into play on Thursday.

This means that people entering the country will be tested on arrival and 10 days later.   

Officials added that the people will be able to skip the self-isolation protocol if the first test is negative. They explained that only 0.2 per cent of those tested 10 days post-arrival had tested positive in the period between July 1 and Aug. 16.

So far, Bahrain has recorded 3,482 coronavirus cases and 178 deaths.
