RIYADH– Saudi Arabia will enforce a 24-hour curfew across the kingdom during a 5-day holiday to celebrate Muslim Eid al-Fitr which marks the end of the holy month of Ramadan, the interior ministry said in a statement on Tuesday, to stem the spread of coronavirus.

Until then economic activities will remain open and people can move freely between 9 a.m. local time (0600 GMT) and 5 p.m., excluding Mecca which remains under full curfew, the statement published by state news agency said.
