Yemen, Philippine missions in Saudi Arabia close
The embassy made the announcement on Twitter late on Saturday, but did not specify how many people had contracted Covid-19.
Similarly, the Philippine Embassy in Riyadh also announced that starting on Sunday its office for labour affairs will close after a number of employees were tested for the coronavirus and six people were confirmed positive for the disease.
The office is being sterilised and employees were working remotely, according to the embassy.
Despite taking early and unprecedented measures to curb the spread of the virus, Saudi Arabia's numbers continue to climb by more than 3,000 cases daily with more than 123,000 confirmed cases overall.
