The royal family of Saudi Arabia is being devastated by the Covid-19 Virus as a reported 150 members of the dynasty have been struck ill.  Elite hospital wards that cater to the medical needs of the Al Saud dynasty have reportedly prepared up to 500 beds to treat stricken royals as the disease spreads through the kingdom.  The royal family have been particularly affected due to the large amount of international travel the extended family engage in during the course of the year. Among those struck ill are the powerful governor of Riyadh, Prince Faisal bin Bandar bin Abdul Aziz al Saud, and his wife, who are among the more senior members of the family.  His Majesty King Salman and several other senior royals have retreated to an island palace retreat in the Red Sea to keep away from the contagion, while the powerful de-facto ruler, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdul Aziz al Saud together with his ministers are in the new High Tech city he is building on Saudi Arabia's Red Sea coast known as Neom.  While some allies of the Saudi royals have tried to deny that Prince Faisal and his wife have been hospitalized, it does appear that he has indeed been admitted to ICU at the King Faisal hospital (named for his late uncle).

The shocked Saudis have declared a unilateral ceasefire in Yemen in reaction to the spread of Coronavirus.
