JEDDAH — Governor of Jeddah Prince Mishal Bin Majed has directed concerned authorities to destroy all random courtyards and locations of camel breeding in the city as part of preventive measures to fight the spread of the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV).

The governor directed concerned departments to remove camels from public streets and from all locations inside the city. He said camel milk should not be sold haphazardly.

He also directed the departments to make continued inspection tours of the main vegetable market to make sure it is free of the fatal virus.

According to the governor, these measures are within the governorate's efforts to curb the spread of the coronavirus, which could be also contracted from animals.
