Students at all stages of education in Saudi Arabia will begin the new term studying remotely, the Ministry of Education has announced. This is to prevent a resurgence of coronavirus.

The only exceptions will be those studying practical curricula which necessitate attendance in person.

The virtual learning platforms were accelerated throughout the pandemic.

The measures will be in force for seven weeks following which they shall be subject to reconsideration.
