Saudi Arabia has appointed Dr Tawfiq bin Fawzan al-Rabiah as Minister of Hajj and Umrah and Fahd bin Abdulrahman al-Jalajil as Minister of Health, Saudi Press Agency reported.

The king also ordered the establishment of a new body that will oversee the development of Yanbu, Umluj, Al-Wajh and Duba regions.

The new body will be chaired by the Kingdom's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, state media said.

The moves come amid the announcement on Friday that Saudi Arabia will begin easing Covid-19 restrictions on Sunday, allowing gatherings and lifting some mask mandates for those who have received both vaccine doses.
