To prevent further spread of the coronavirus, the Saudis have been imposing a curfew since the beginning of this week. They also closed theaters, malls, to restaurants.

Other Gulf countries were also hit by Covid-19. The United Arab Emirates, for example, suspended all flights and transit programs earlier this week.
