An official at the National Center for Disease Control, Ibrahim Al-Deghis, has confirmed that the center has not recorded any cases of the new variant of the Coronavirus, as the latest warnings come within the framework of precautionary measures.

Al-Deghis, a member of the NCDC scientific committee, added that many of the tests they received came out as regular flu, which does not represent a danger to the public.

Regarding the suspension of studies by some education observers in the regions, he said the center understands their concern but ensured that the epidemiological situation in the country is stable.

Al-Deghis explained that the NCDC's policy is to encourage the public, especially elderly people, to get vaccinated against seasonal influenza.
