The Emir's visit to King Fahd Hospital has drawn more media attention; this is from Al-Madaen.com.sa: Emir of Mecca reassure citizens and confirms corona virus under control. Excerpt from a Google translation, with my bolding:
Prince Mishal bin Abdullah, Governor of Mecca on Thursday paid an inspection visit to the King Fahd Hospital in Jeddah, which reassured the progress of work at the hospital and the health status of the auditors.
He was greeted upon his arrival at the hospital, Deputy Minister of Health Planning and Development, Dr. Mohammed Khchim; and Deputy Assistant Undersecretary for Preventive Medicine Dr. Ziad MEMC, the Director General of Health Affairs in Makkah Region Dr. Abdul Salam Crown; and Director of Health Affairs in Jeddah Dr. Sami bin Muhammad Badawod and a number of officials of the Health Affairs Jeddah and King Fahd Hospital;
where he heard his explanation adequately ministry officials about the procedures and health precautions and preventative that have been taken to combat the virus Corona and reduce the spread, which included a process of sterilizing a full emergency units in the hospital and practical training for workers in the hospital nurses, workers and supporters on how to HIV prevention and to provide the means of prevention and safety for all employees as well as providing health education about the virus and how to prevent it to all the reviewers with publications provide awareness describes methods of transmission of the virus and methods of prevention and avoid injury do not, God forbid.
He also presented to explain the number of cases of contacts from relatives of the confirmed cases and medical teams, which began providing medical services to the cases, confirmed that proved thankfully the absence of any cases of positive during the past two days, while the total number of samples that have been tested since the onset of the disease for nearly 900 sample proved they are free of disease Koruna except 20 samples were positive;

Two points worth mentioning: For a "surprise" visit, the prince had quite a reception committee, including Dr. Ziad A. Memish. And note the "20 positive samples" buried in the middle of a long, rambling Arabic sentence. That may be the source of the "21 cases" mentioned earlier today. Or it may not.
