Saudi: Stricter lockdown measures over Omicron fears ruled out

The Saudi Ministry of Health has ruled out the possibility of imposing stricter lockdown measures as the mutated coronavirus variant of Omicron spreads.

The reason for this is that the symptoms of the pandemic at present in the Kingdom do not have the same intensity as it had during the time of its outbreak early in 2020.

The ministry has also said that the escalation of Omicron will decrease soon, especially after the re-imposition of health precautionary measures, while adding that the studies have proven that the third dose strongly protects against getting infected with the virus, as well as containing its spread.
