The Health Inspection Section at Al Khor and Al Thakhira Municipality has continued inspection of food outlets within its jurisdiction, adopting the motto 'Your safety is our top priority.'
The campaign included a visit to a shop selling live chicken at Al Khor City. Dr Ahmed Shadi, a veterinarian at the Health Inspection Section, pointed out the necessary health and hygiene conditions that should be followed at such outlets.
