Saudi Arabia recorded 165 new coronavirus cases bringing the total to 1,885 with a death toll of 21, according to the health ministry. Of the total cases, 328 recovered so far.
The Kingdom has taken several other measures in an effort to combat the spread of the virus. Pilgrimage for national and foreign worshippers was suspended last month. Most recently, Saudi Arabia asked Muslims around the world to be patient and delay their plans for the Hajj and Umrah pilgrimages amid uncertainties surrounding the coronavirus pandemic, according to the Kingdom’s Minister of Hajj and Umrah.
