Saudi Arabia had on Tuesday announced that it was suspending entry to the kingdom for travellers coming from 20 countries, with the exception of diplomats, Saudi citizens, medical practitioners and their families, to help curb the spread of the coronavirus, the state news agency had reported. The temporary ban, effective from yesterday, includes people arriving from the UAE, Germany, US, Britain, South Africa, France, Egypt, Lebanon, India and Pakistan, among others.
