Al-Wadia remains the only transition point between the two countries after other border crossings were closed due to the conflict continuing in Yemen since September 2014.
While Yemen has not reported any coronavirus case yet, the number of cases in Saudi Arabia rose to 2,795 on Wednesday, with the death toll at 41, according to the country’s Health Ministry. ■
