Coronavirus: Saudi Arabia launches 31 ‘fever clinics’ to treat symptomatic patients

Saudi Arabia has announced the launch of several “Tataman” clinics, which are tasked with receiving anyone experiencing symptoms of the emerging coronavirus, according to the Kingdom’s Ministry of Health.

These new facilities – identified in English as “fever clinics” in a ministry tweet – will operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

“In the interest of the health of all those on the land of our dear homeland, we launched today “tataman” [reassurance] clinics that are dedicated to people who experience symptoms of coronavirus, such as high fever, and will expand during the next two days,” Saudi Health Minister Tawfig al-Rabiah said in a tweet on Saturday.
