No plans to impose strict lockdown in Saudi Arabia

Dr. Muhammad Al-Abdel Ali the spokesperson of the Ministry of Health has ruled out the possibility of imposing stricter lockdown measures as the mutated coronavirus variant of Omicron spreads.

During “YaHalaShow” on Rotana Khalijiya channel, he said that the symptoms of Omicron are not as intense as it was in 2020 and therefore, the possibility of stricter lockdown is ruled out by the Ministry.

He said: Do not be affected by the false information and do not let seeing the daily increase in numbers of infected cases cause you to fear and panic, and I call on everyone to complete taking their doses and adhere to preventive precautions.

It has been proved that Omicron is the fastest-spreading virus in history, Dr. Abdel Ali said while attributing this to the sudden spike in cases of infection in the Kingdom.

He said that the escalation of Omicron will decrease soon, especially after the re-imposition of health precautionary measures.
