Health Ministry spokesman Dr. Muhammad al-Abd al-Ali said reports of deaths in children after the Covid-19 vaccination were baseless.
More he has said that “Such false news is nothing but aimed at spreading chaos in the society. Also, there is no record in Saudi Arabia that a child has died after vaccination. Also, the news spread on social media is baseless and a lie that Ministry can not ignore.”
“Residents will have to resort to standard means to get accurate and authentic news,” he said.
Furthermore, the epidemic in Saudi Arabia is mainly under control. There are fewer patients in the country who are in critical condition due to corona. Also, it is because they have not completed two doses.
