“We have not recorded in the Kingdom any case of infection with the new Coronavirus, and we have started implementing strict precautionary and preventive measures to check it from reaching the Kingdom.

The minister said that the National Center for Disease Prevention and Control has prepared a health guide to deal with suspected cases, carry out the necessary laboratory tests and a mechanism for collecting and transferring samples to the national laboratory at the center. The center also has issued advisory to those traveling to the regions where the disease has broke out.
The minister said that since the beginning of the discovery of the virus in China, the Command and Control Center at the Ministry of Health has taken many precautionary measures and implemented international health regulations that are followed in such situations and that is in full coordination with all relevant agencies to deal with this situation.
“The Center will address the issue by taking a number of preventive precautions, including closely monitoring the epidemiological situation by communicating with the World Health Organization and other available sources and coordinating with GACA to assess direct and indirect travel between the Kingdom and China in order to provide information to people who may travel to the regions where the disease broke out as well as to monitor the incoming passengers and put them under medical tests at the entry ports so as to ensure their safety,” he said.
