RIYADH — The number of coronavirus cases in Saudi Arabia hovered around 4,000 for the third consecutive day on Monday. The ministry of health reported 3,943 infections, along with 2,363 recoveries during the past 24 hours. As many as 48 new deaths were also reported.
With this, 186,436 cases have been reported in the Kindgom, along with 127,118 recoveries. Total deaths now stand at 1,599. There are 57,719 active cases in the country, of which 2,285 are critical.
With 433 infections, Hufof again led the table. It was followed by 363 in Riyadh, 357 in Dammam, 263 in Makkah, 219 in Qatif, 212 in Jeddah, 196 in Mubarraz, 183 in Taif, 169 in Madinah, 166 in Abha, 134 in Khamis Mushayt and 103 in Al-Khobar. The other cases were detected in cities and provinces across the country.
Health ministry spokesman Dr. Muhammad Al-Abdel Ali said critical cases have hovered between 2,000 and 2,500. "They are high numbers but they seem to stabilizing now," he said on Sunday.
"We can notice in June, and specifically from mid-June, we have been recording a rate of infection between 1 and approximately 1.5. This rate coincides with our adherence to precautionary measures or lack of adherence. We remind you that experts advise countries to keep the 1 so that infections are lower and spread slower.
Currently, we notice in the last few days a slight increase, which requires us to be careful," he added.
Dr. Al-Abdel Ali urged the public to follow preventative measures such as social distancing and wearing a mask at all times.
Most of the cases in Saudi Arabia are caused by people who failed to follow precautionary measures and spread the infection to others, he added.
