Coronavirus reached one of the richest families in the world

Diseases know no boundaries, nor property qualifications. And even the powerful of this world are not immune from serious illnesses. So, misfortune came to one of the richest families in the world - the family of the head of Saudi Arabia, Salman ibn Abdul-Aziz al-Saud.

The French publication Le Figaro writes with reference to its source that in the family of the Saudi monarch, about 150 princes were infected with COVID-19, and a real panic seized the surrounding king and crown prince of the country, Mohammed bin Salman. The New York Times, confirming this information, indicates that the governor of the capital and the king's thoroughbred, Prince Faisal, was taken to the intensive care unit.

About 33 million people live in Saudi Arabia, and the risk of an increase in the number of people infected in this country is very high. Among the total population, about 7 million are foreign specialists and about 2 million are illegal, mainly from African countries, among which the coronavirus can spread quite quickly.

The situation is so serious that the authorities are considering the possibility of a ban on the Hajj to Mecca and Medina - holy cities for every Muslim. Hajj is a religious pilgrimage to Muslim shrines, which takes place in July-August. The last time it was canceled during Napoleon's invasion of Egypt in 1798.

By the way, according to the Bloomberg rating, the Saudi royal family was among the top five richest families in the world - their fortune is estimated at $ 100 billion (data for August 2019).

        And I don’t worry about them. No. The family there is large, doctors will need a lot, I doubt that they are all the best. Where can I read about the achievements of advanced medicine in the Arabian Peninsula? Ibn Sina, nothing else comes to my mind, however, it was a long time ago, and I'm not sure what it is there. But to use someone else’s medicine for money is not a fact that it will work out, they are needed there by their own.
