King Faisal Hospital where members of the royal family in Saudi Arabia, including King Salman are treated, has been closed to all but emergency cases after a staff member tested positive for the coronavirus, medical sources in the hospital told Middle East Eye on Friday.
The Hospital is one of the biggest in the country with about 1,000 beds, will remain closed to most patients until at least Tuesday, after the female anaesthetist had exposure to colleagues and patients.
She collapsed during a procedure and is suspected of having picked up the virus from a domestic worker at her home, Middle East Eye reported.
At least 12 confirmed cases, and King Salman isolated at his palace.
