The Saudi Health Ministry has tripled the daily number of COVID-19 tests, which explains the increase in confirmed cases in the Kingdom, said Health Minister Tawfiq Al-Rabiah.

Al-Rabiah said Saudi Arabia is among the countries with the lowest mortality rate and fewest critical cases due to efficient medical efforts and protocols.

The ministry was conducting 5,000-6,000 tests daily until a month ago. That number has increased to 16,000-18,000. The total number of polymerase chain reaction tests conducted so far is 586,405.
