The spokesperson for the General Authority confirmed during the daily press conference that “the number of local factories for sterilizers reached 49, an increase of 40%, producing more than one and a half million liters of sterilizers.”
The spokesman said that the Saudi Food and Drug Authority supports the local drug industry.
The Food and Drug Authority said on April 7 that the number of sterilizer factories has been increased to 31 in the Kingdom, in light of people rushing to buy these products to face the possibility of transmission through contact with contaminated surfaces or others.
It also announced that the export of all medical devices had been stopped since the beginning of the crisis.
