“I know how hard this period of Ramadan has been with so many people unable to spend time with their friends and family in the way that they normally would because of the coronavirus restrictions.

“So I’d like to thank everybody for the sacrifices that they have made in recent weeks and hope that as infections fall, we can look forward to much happier times in the year ahead.”

Eid began in the evening of May 12 and finished in the evening of May 13.
