    Riyadh, Jun 23, 2020, SPA — Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud chaired today a Cabinet’s virtual session.

    At the outset of the session, the Cabinet reviewed local and international developments on the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The Cabinet was briefed on the cases reported in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia as well as the proactive monitoring activities which contributed to reducing the spread of the virus. The Cabinet was also briefed on the medical and health care provided for the infected cases.

    The Cabinet called on citizens, expatriates and employers to abide by the precautionary and preventive measures, adhere to the directives issued by the competent authorities, and apply all approved preventive protocols, following the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques’ approval to lift the curfew completely in all regions and cities of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and allow the resumption of all economic and commercial activities. The Cabinet stressed that this emanates from the leadership’s keenness on ensuring that life returns to normal without affecting the health and safety of all people; moving forward in plans and initiatives to preserve economic gains and continue development and progress; and supporting the local economy by all possible means.
