At its regular meeting on April 29, Cabinet amended the regulations on rewarding public servants and public health care workers with bonuses and skill-based incentives. This entitles some workers and retirees of the public and health care sectors to years of service awards, skill-based incentives, and hazardous duty pay.

Moreover, public healthcare workers delivering medical services to patients with tuberculosis, pharmacists, and workers involved in disinfection will receive hazard pay.
In addition, Cabinet approved a list of consumer food products to be exempted from customs and value added tax until June 30, 2020. These include edible wheat, seeds, all types of rice, 10 types of vegetable oils, and sugar.
