Saudi Arabia suspends schools and universities from Monday over coronavirus
Schools and universities will be closed in Saudi Arabia from Monday to control the spread of coronavirus.
The Saudi Ministry of Education said the “preventive and precautionary” measures were recommended by the health authorities and are designed to protect students and staff.
The decision covers all educational institutions, including public and private schools, and technical and vocational training institutions.
Four new cases were reported on Sunday, taking the tally to 11 cases, all in Qatif Province, which has been locked down, preventing entry and exit to the region, in an effort to combat the Covid-19 virus.
