In order to combat COVID-19 / The Corona Virus Saudi Arabia has taken a key step to limit the transmission of the Virus. It is now imposing a 24 Hour lock across major cities including Riyadh, Damman and Jeddah.
Whilst this means big changes across the country, there is still permission granted for people to go outside between 6 AM and 3 PM but ONLY within their own neighbourhoods for essential food shopping or medical care. Additionally, a maximum of 1 person should be in the car at any one time.
This swift action allows Saudi Arabia to stay at the forefront in combating the spread across the country with one of the lowest death rates globally at 38.
