How Kingdom took Control of Corona Virus:
Saudi Arabia Government and Ministry of Passports temporarily banned 9 countries from travel destinations (To and from) on March 13, 2020, due to the increase in the spread of the chronic virus in these countries, including South Korea, UAE (United Arab Emirates), Italy, Egypt, Iraq, Syria, Bahrain, Kuwait, and Lebanon.
The government also banned the movement in the country’s interior cities.
While taking the precautionary measurements, the Ministry of Interior and the KSA government decided to banned any means of travel (Sea, Land, Air) between the cities of KSA and outside the country due to the self-isolation held by KSA.
Later, a decision was made. Trade trips and shipping were removed from this ban. Trade can be made between the countries while adopting preventive measures due to the ultimate loss in KSA’s economy.
While considering the preventive measures, some parts of KSA became the victim of COVID-19, including KSA’s eastern province.
To control and stop the spread of this chronic virus, the Ministry of Interior (MOI) and Ministry of Health (MOH) combined their services to protect humanity. They decided to charge the curfew (Quarantine) in some parts of the eastern province.
Moreover, the country lost its connection (entry and exfil) from QATIF till the end of March 2020.
Ministry of Interior and Ministry of Health asked the public, citizens, and tourist stuck in-country (due to the ban on international flights) to take preventive measures and keep each other safe in this plague; otherwise, it will not only effects one person but also it will leave disastrous effects on the whole family of the victim.
People helped the KSA government and took preventive measures throughout the curfew(quarantine). Life is coming to normal.
