According the WHO, the kingdom has experienced the highest number of cases of COVI-19 infections since it started tracking the virus there in December, and the latest cases are the highest ever reported in Saudi Arabian history.
According to Saudi Arabian health officials, the virus was detected in April, and is being investigated as a new form of COV-19, but it was not immediately clear what was causing the outbreak.
While coronaviroctosis is the most common cause of COVD-19 infection, coronaviral infection also affects the liver and lung, and there is evidence that coronavibacter can also cause COV disease.
However, it is not known if COV has affected the health of the people in Saudi.
“Saudi Arabia is in the forefront of tackling COVID transmission,” said Dr Mohammad Saeed Al-Suri, deputy director of the Saudi Center for Disease Control and Prevention (SCDC).
“Saudi Arabian authorities are taking all possible measures to contain the outbreak, including isolating people from close contacts, isolating patients, and shutting down medical facilities, in order to prevent any spread.”
