Coronavirus; King Salman orders free treatment for all, including visa violators

King Salman has ordered COVID-19 treatment to be provided, free of charge, for all citizens and expatriates, including residence violators.

Minister of Health Tawfiq Al-Rabiah addressing a press conference in Riyadh on Monday, urged all of those showing symptoms of coronavirus not to hesitate in going to a hospital, whether private or public, to get tested and receive the proper treatment under King Salman’s new order.

Al-Rabiah said the royal order was borne out of the king’s keenness to put the health of citizens and residents first and to ensure the safety of everyone.

This includes residency visa violators, who should not legally be in the country, and they will not face any legal consequences, SPA reported quoting Al-Rabiah as saying.

The number of coronavirus infected in Saudi Arabia reached 1,453 on Monday, with 8 confirmed deaths and 115 recoveries.
