Riyadh, May 16, 2020, SPA -- Minister of Health Dr. Tawfiq Bin Fawzan Al Rabiah affirmed that the Kingdom is among the lowest in mortality rate and critical cases in the world as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, indicating that this is due to medical care.
This came in a speech delivered by the minister today.
He explained that the increase in the number of cases is the result of the increase in the number of tests and capacity in the laboratories to more than three times the capacity that was at the beginning of the pandemic and also the expanded testing in all regions of the Kingdom.
He added that the tests will be further increased to discover as many cases as possible to save them before it is too late.
