With the start of the countdown to disburse bonuses to front line health workers, high-ranking sources in the Ministry of Health revealed the employees who are entitled to the reward include only government sector employees, meaning employees working on contracts in the government sector are not entitled to the reward and this include nurses who may be working for government health facilities but hired through private contracting companies.

Al-Qabas has learned the decision issued by the Council of Ministers regarding the payment of front-row bonuses is for government employees. The Government Communications Center had previously announced that the rewards include government sector employees those appointed based on decisions, hired on contracts, or the use of services, in accordance with the legal decision, regardless of their nationalities.

The sources indicated that employees of companies contracted with government agencies, whether in the Ministry of Health or any other government agency, are not covered by the rewards, as they do not belong to the government sector, and they are legally employed in the private sector.
