The Saudi authorities excluded all activities where social distancing cannot be applied from the three-phased plan it unveiled on May 25 for a return to normal life. Other activities that remain suspended include sports and health clubs, recreational centers and cinemas. As curfew restrictions have eased up in the Kingdom, the Ministry of Health reminded people who have returned to work this week not to share eating utensils with co-workers. The Kingdom recorded 30 new COVID-19-related deaths on Wednesday, raising the total to 579. There were 2,171 new cases reported in the Kingdom, meaning 91,182 people have now contracted the disease. There are 22,444 active cases, 1,321 of them are in critical condition. The Health Ministry also announced that 2,369 more patients had recovered from coronavirus, bringing the total number of recoveries in the Kingdom to 68,159. Saudi Arabia has so far conducted 870,963 tests for COVID-19. The ministry called upon people to continue washing their hands using soap and water, the basic preventive measure against the virus, as well as covering the nose and mouth with a face mask, medical or fabric, except for those in an enclosed space. Anyone experiencing any of the symptoms of the virus — high fever, dry cough and breathing difficulties — is advised to use the “Mawid” app for self-evaluation, or call 937 for inquiries and consultations. The ministry has enabled callers to get reliable information  through an interactive chat with medical teams via WhatsApp on 920005937.

Author: Thu, 2020-06-04 02:37 RIYADH: Officials from the Pakistan Embassy in Riyadh and the country’s consulate in Jeddah have stepped in to speed up the repatriation of hundreds of Pakistani citizens from Saudi Arabia. Pakistan ambassador to the Kingdom, Raja Ali Ejaz, said: “Two PIA (Pakistan International Airlines) special flights, carrying 140 passengers each and one special flight carrying 250 passengers, departed from Riyadh for Multan and Peshawar respectively on Tuesday. The Peshawar-bound flight also carried mortal remains of 16 Pakistanis.” The envoy along with embassy officials were present at Riyadh airport to see off Pakistani citizens returning home. The government of Pakistan has started a series of special flights to repatriate Pakistanis stranded in various countries around the world, including Saudi Arabia. In the Kingdom, flight operations are being coordinated by the Pakistani missions. A Pakistani Ministry of Foreign Affairs statement issued in Riyadh by the embassy on Tuesday said: “In their efforts, the Embassy of Pakistan in Riyadh and Consulate General of Pakistan in Jeddah have so far facilitated the repatriation of more than 4,000 Pakistanis, including 480 Umrah zaireen and 195 detainees.” The missions are also providing ration bags to needy Pakistanis in the Kingdom and coordinating special flights with PIA to ease the return of stranded Pakistanis. The statement added that mission officials were in contact with the Pakistani diaspora and would continue to assist them while adhering to lockdown restrictions. At the request of Pakistan, the number of special flights to Saudi Arabia has been increased to accelerate the repatriation process. In cases where Pakistanis had died, the missions had helped with arrangements for 40 burials while 90 bodies had been repatriated to Pakistan. In line with the directives of Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan for the early repatriation of stranded Pakistanis, the missions are working closely with the Saudi authorities, PIA, and relevant authorities in Pakistan to ensure their swift return.
