DUBAI: Hospitals and medical centers in Najran, Saudi Arabia, delivered medicine to 4,098 customers in the past two weeks, state news agency SPA said.
The service is part of the Kingdom’s efforts to curb the spread of coronavirus by decreasing the number of people visiting hospitals and encouraging residents and citizens to stay at home.
Health authorities in Najran also rescheduled appointments, suspended visitations to hospital patients, postponed routine operations, regular dentist checks and physical treatments. Instead, customers could receive medical help and support through WhatsApp.
Meanwhile, the Saudi Ministry of Health has launched a new app aimed at monitoring the conditions of people suspected of having the coronavirus disease (COVID-19).
The Tatamman, which means ‘Rest Assured’ in English, app will allow individuals who are self-isolating or in quarantine to access up-to-date advice and information on the virus and their health status.
Ministry spokesman, Dr. Mohammed Al-Abd Al-Aly, said: “It (the app) is for those who have the symptoms, or recently returned to Saudi Arabia, those who have been in direct contact with a positive case, as well as those currently under home quarantine as instructed by the ministry.”
The Kingdom has so far reported 2,932 coronavirus cases, 41 deaths and 631 recoveries.
