Saudi Arabia has suspended all work in private sectors for 15 days as part of the country’s efforts to contain the coronavirus, state-run news agency SPA reported today. 

The kingdom ordered activation of “remote working procedures except for vital sectors and sensitive infrastructure sectors such as electricity, water, and communications,” said SPA, citing the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Development.

On Tuesday, Saudi Arabia banned Muslims from conducting five daily prayers and Friday prayers inside mosques as a precautionary measure to limit the spread of coronavirus, according to SPA.

Saudi Arabia currently has 171 cases, according to Johns Hopkins University.
