Hind Al Soulia - Riyadh - RIYADH — Saudi Arabia is to screen travelers arriving from China after the outbreak of a new coronavirus. The respiratory virus has emerged from the central Chinese city of Wuhan.

The Kingdom will assess passengers arriving on direct and indirect flights from China to ensure their safety, the Ministry of Health said in a statement on Thursday.

The ministry is coordinating with the Kingdom’s General Authority of Civil Aviation (GACA) and advised those traveling to affected cities to avoid markets, dead or live animals and animal derived products.
