Saudi Arabia extends curfew until further notice

Saudi Arabia’s King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud has ordered the extension of the curfew according to the current rates and indicators of the spread of the novel Coronavirus until a further notice.

The kingdom had previously ordered a curfew that took effect on March 23, from 7 pm to 6 am for 21 days, reported Saudi Press Agency (SPA).

Last week Saudi Arabia placed its capital Riyadh and other big cities under a 24-hour curfew, locking down much of the population to stem the spread of the new coronavirus.

The Ministry of Interior affirmed the continuity of all ongoing special precautionary measures that were previously announced in a number of cities, governorates and residential areas, in addition to preventing movement across the 13 regions of the Kingdom.
