JEDDAH: The Deputy Minister for Public Health Affairs and head of the Control and Leadership Center, Abdulaziz bin Saeed, has disclosed that 32 cleaning employees who work in a private company in Al-Thumama have been subjected to health quarantine and monitoring for 14 days after four of their colleagues contracted the coronavirus.
He said the situation is under control and that the other women have now tested negative for the disease, but were kept separate from their colleagues as a precautionary measure.
Saeed said that symptoms can take up to two weeks to surface, which calls for the daily testing of all collected samples, a process that will continue throughout the incubation period of the virus.
