Dubai: The high incidence of critical conditions arising out of coronavirus infections in Jeddah and Riyadh has been linked to a failure to adhere to healthy behaviours, the Ministry of Health spokesperson, Dr Mohammad Al Abdali, said, according to Saudi Sabaq online newspaper. 

The spokesperson stressed the importance of exercising caution during this period and the need to adhere to precautionary measures and healthy behaviours to prevent a second wave of the outbreak.  He added: “We do not want to see any more critical cases or health problems resulting from irresponsible behaviour. Unfortunately, we found some [such] behaviours which are reckless and risk lives.”  He further said:
