A new coronavirus case has been registered in Saudi Arabia, so there are two cases in the kingdom so far.
The newly infected patient accompanied the first patient from Iran via Bahrain. Although filling the disclosure form at the entry points in Saudi is one of the precautionary measurements taken in Saudi, the second patient did not disclose that he had been in Iran recently.
An epidemiological survey was conducted on everyone who came into contact with the patient and the places he visited. The National Center for Disease Prevention and Control collected samples for examination, to ensure the safety of the people who met with the infected cases.
Globally the number of cases has reached 95,500, most of them in China and out of the cases 56,975 are no longer active as 53,689 cases were cured. The number of deaths is 3,286.
