RIYADH — Saudi Arabia has cordoned off Qatif region in the Eastern Province in a bid to contain the spread of coronavirus after discovering that all the 11 affected persons in the Kingdom are from the said region. “Given that all 11 recorded positive cases of the new coronavirus are from Qatif... it has been decided to temporarily suspend entry and exit from Qatif,” the Ministry of Interior said in a statement carried by the Saudi Press Agency.

Movement from and into the province stands temporarily suspended, but residents who are currently outside the area will be allowed back in.
