The Ministry of Interior placed seven neighbourhoods under lockdown in Jeddah as a preventive measure against the new coronavirus: Kilo 14 South, Kilo 14 North, Al-Mahjar, Ghulail, Al-Qurayyat, Kilo 13, and Petromin. A 24-curfew will be imposed in these neighbourhoods and the entry to and exit from these areas will also be restricted starting today until further notice, in an effort to slow the spread of the virus. Residents in these Jeddah neighbourhoods can only go out for grocery shopping and medical care between 6 am and 3 pm and movement in and out of the areas will be restricted. Similar measures have been announced in the past few days in other Saudi cities, including the Gulf port of Dammam. Full story
