The SFDA’s application also provides the user with information about food, drugs, cosmetics and medical devices, through scanning the item’s barcode or typing in the product’s trade name.

Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Health continues to stress that the main preventative and precautionary measures to protect against coronavirus infection are: regularly washing hands and sanitizing them, covering the mouth and nose using a face mask when in public, social distancing, staying at home, avoiding touching dirty surfaces, avoiding touching one’s face, and staying away from anyone showing symptoms of respiratory disease.

There are 39,048 confirmed coronavirus cases, 11,457 recovered patients and 246 fatalities in Saudi Arabia as of Sunday, according to the Ministry of Health.
