Saudi Arabia Coronavirus News June 8

Riyadh: Saudi Arabia registered 3,045 new COVID-19 cases on Sunday, bringing the total cases to 101,914, the Health Ministry tweeted.

The death toll reached 721 after the reporting of 36 new fatalities - the highest daily fatality count since the outbreak began.

Saudi Arabia has 28,385 actives cases, of which 1,564 are in critical condition. The recoveries increased to 72,817 with the 1,026 newly recovered cases, Xinhua reported.

In mid-February, Saudi Arabia offered generous support to China to help fight the deadly virus. As the virus raged in Saudi Arabia, a team of eight Chinese medical experts visited the Kingdom on April 15 to assist its anti-coronavirus fight.

Alarmed by the surge in Covid-19 cases, Saudi health chiefs on Sunday decided to open a temporary hospital in Jeddah and 31 new 24/7 walk-in clinics across the Kingdom.

The hospital, at the Jeddah International Exhibition and Convention Center North of the city, will treat patients with mild symptoms. It has opened with 20 beds, and will have 500 when fully operational.

The clinics, open to anyone suffering COVID-19 symptoms, are in Riyadh, Makkah, Madinah, Jeddah, Al-Qassim, and Al-Ahsa. They operate round the clock and there is no need for an appointment, according to Arab News.
