Ramadan Advice during COVID-19 pandemic

The Muslim Council of Britain has issued guidance on COVID-19 and Ramadan. 
https://mcb.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/MCB-Ramadan-2020-Guidance.pdf

MCB guidance includes updated information on who may be exempt from the fast.  Though some individuals in these groups may still prefer to carry out the fast. These include:

  • All those who are unable to fast due to illness (physical or mental) or being very frail
  • Women menstruating or with lochia discharge
  • Pregnant or lactating women who have credible concerns about their own or their child’s health
  • Travellers
  • Healthcare staff required to provide care to Covid-19 patients at real risk of dehydration and making clinical errors due to wearing PPE and long shifts

The WHO have also released guidance.  This states that there have been no studies of fasting and risk of COVID-19 infection. They recommend that healthy people should be able to fast during this Ramadan as in previous years. COVID-19 patients may consider breaking the fast in consultation with their doctors.
