Saudi Arabia imposes traffic ban on Coronavirus

Saudi Arabia’s King Salman bin AbdulAziz announced a nationwide traffic law, which he said began Monday, to curb the spread of the Coronavirus.

Under the law, all citizens in Saudi Arabia are prohibited from 7 pm to 6 am for 3 weeks.

The Saudi government has taken steps to limit traffic to an estimated 511 people with influenza, although so far no one has been killed.

Traffic laws do not apply to law enforcement or safety officials.

Already, the Coronavirus epidemic has forced to shut down cinemas, markets and restaurants, and shut down its airports after stopping for Umrah.

Saudi Arabia has also banned prayers in all mosques in the country, with the exception of the world’s largest mosque, including the Harami mosque in Makkah and Madina.
