In a statement, the Ministry of Health (MOH) said, “Dining-in at F&B establishments remains a high-risk activity because many people will be unmasked and in close proximity with each other. The pair had only clashed once before over the 25-lap race at the 2019 World Championships where Hassan beat Gidey to gold. Gidey, who also holds the world record in 5,000m, came into the race with fresh legs, having decided to only contest the 10,000m in Tokyo. Japan's Ririka Hironaka led for the first six laps before Gidey made her move followed by a pack of three Kenyans and the Ethiopian stayed ahead for most of the last seven kilometres. These measures will also take effect from 10 August. Hassan tucked in just behind the leaders and with about 3,000m remaining, she increased her pace to take second spot. "The transition roadmap will therefore be a very careful balance between lives and livelihoods," he added.

Despite running three races in Tokyo's searing heat and humidity in the last few days, Hassan managed to find an even higher gear before the final turn to surge past Gidey and cross the line in 29:55.32." The safe management measures will also be eased for other activities and settings. Bahrain's Kalkidan Gezahegne, also Ethiopian-born, held on to her pace in the closing stages as Gidey faded after trying to make her way past a back-marker.
