As the world continues to fight the COVID-19 pandemic through vaccinations and containment measures, Saudi Arabia has made notable progress toward ensuring the health and safety of its citizens. To date, over one million people in the Kingdom, including both Saudi citizens and expats, have been vaccinated across 500 health centers (for a total of more than two million administered doses). As of March 14, 2021, Saudi Arabia has recorded 14.2 million PCR tests conducted, 372,456 patients recovered from COVID-19, 6,563 deaths, and 28,557,611 health and medical consultations through the country’s toll-free “937” hotline. To assist with national vaccination efforts, the Kingdom Hospital in Riyadh was approved as the country’s first specialized private hospital to provide vaccinations, free of charge, in a strategic partnership agreement with the Ministry of Health.
