Al Hammadi said, “The death cases from COVID-19 disease in the country remained at their previous rates, at 0.5% of the total cases, thanks to the health care and advanced treatment protocols that the country provides for the injured.
Al Hammadi said, “We have spotted some clips on social media for gatherings and holding parties in some facilities without applying preventive measures, and we call on all members of society to take responsibility for maintaining social distancing and wearing masks.”
