RIYADH — The gradual increase in the number of daily coronavirus cases in the Kingdom continued on Wednesday with the ministry of health reporting 1,687 new infections and nine new deaths.

The Kingdom has witnessed 1,352 recoveries, bringing the number of total recovered cases in Saudi Arabia to 6,783.
"Comprehensive testing is entering a new phase, self-evaluation. Around one million people self-evaluated themselves, this contributed to the early detection of cases," health ministry spokesman Dr. Muhammad Al-Abdel Ali was quoted by Saudi PressAgency (SPA) as saying.
