Upto 150 Saudi royals infected with Covid-19: reports

Apr 09, 2020 12:33 IST

More than six weeks after Saudi Arabia reported its first case, the coronavirus has infected several members of the kingdom's royal family. New York Times has reported that as many as 150 royals in the kingdom are now believed to have contracted the virus. 84-year-old King Salman has reportedly secluded himself in an island palace near Jeddah on the Red Sea, while the kingdom's de facto ruler Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman has retreated with many of his ministers to a remote site on the same coast. Saudi Arabia so far has reported 41 deaths from the coronavirus and 2,795 confirmed cases.
