People are extremely worried about the extremities of this new airborne virus which is why officials are doing their best to strengthen health facilities on a regular basis.

Due to the Ministry of Health Dr. Muhammad Al Abdulaali, retrieved by the SPA Saudi Press Agency, claimed that the necessary measures for the virus depends and may alternate on a daily basis. It depends on the outcomes that are retrieved as well as full monitoring of the global and regional risks.

Based on the words of both Dr. Al Abdulaali as well as the minister, effective health monitoring as well as protocols are under process. Any person to test positive will be announced publically to keep everyone updated and the infected person will undergo severe quarantine for their own benefit as well as the benefit of the entire kingdom.

Dr. Al- Abdulaali has shown extreme importance for those who are returning to the Kingdom from abroad. He declared it a necessity for people to declare where they are coming back from as soon as they arrive at the border crossing point, airport, or even seaport. This is important for those who are returning from coronavirus hotspots which is why they need to know in advance, to allow time and room for the necessary quarantine procedures.

The health authorities have provided the public with a toll free number 937 so as to ensure protection for themselves, their families, and the surroundings as well as the society as a whole. This is a great way to ensure the proceedings of the health protocols.

Dr. Al-Abdulaali has drawn attention to the fact that the reason Saudi Arabia first got infected by the airborne virus was from the five coronavirus infected cases that have come from Iran, leaving Iran not only at fault but also infected.

Both the Global Center for Mass Medicine and National Center for Preventing and Combating Disease as well as other authorities are still continuing to work on mass medicine to help put a stop to this infectious virus once and for all.

“Saudi Arabia on Thursday denounced Iran’s irresponsible action of granting Saudi citizens entry to its territories without stamping their passports, especially at a time where there is an outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19) in Iran.”

Dr. Naif Al-Harbi, the head of KAIMRC’s drug-development unit, told Al-Ekhbariya TV news channel that they expect to have hold of nine vaccines, all of which are in the third stage of clinical trials.

“Approval or disapproval of any drug normally follows the third stage of its clinical trials, which is the last stage,” he added. “Since the pandemic, KAIMRC has been in continuous contact with a number of drug companies in four countries (that are developing vaccines).” Al-Harbi said.

“We examine the drugs and make sure they have caused no side effects when tested on humans, or that they just caused insignificant side effects,” said Al-Harbi. “We also look into the manufacturing company’s profile to ensure it follows the standards of the good manufacturing practices, and that the company’s products are consistently produced and controlled according to quality standards.”

We’re wishing for the best and for a vaccine to be developed, so our lives can go back to normal.
