Via Arab News: Land shortage delays 220 health projects. Excerpt:
Health Minister Dr. Abdullah Al-Rabeeah says his ministry has not been able to implement 220 new health projects because of a land shortage.
This was one of the most important challenges facing the ministry. However, Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah has already ordered the government to provide land for the ministry in the north and east of Riyadh, he told Ali Al-Alyani, who interviewed him on the television program “Tuesday Table” on Rotana Khalijia.
Al-Rabeeah said the ministry’s other challenge over the past Haj season was the danger of an H1N1 outbreak in the Kingdom. “But the ministry’s efforts and experience ensured the season was successful and epidemic-free.”
But not a word about MERS or the status of the 85 non-fatal cases the Kingdom has reported since September 2012.
