The Minister of Health, Dr. Tawfiq Al-Rabiah, said that the mutated Corona virus is under study and we are following its developments with great interest.  In an interview with Al-Akhbariya, Al-Rabiah explained that the leadership was keen to prevent travel until the nature of this mutated virus is understood, indicating that the speed of the virus’s spread is currently under study.

It is noteworthy that the Kingdom decided yesterday (Sunday) to temporarily suspend all international flights and entry through land and sea ports for a period of one week, which can be extended after the spread of a new mutated type of the emerging corona virus (Covid-19) in a number of countries.
