Saudi Arabia has lifted its nationwide curfew nearly three months after introducing it to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus.

That's according to the state news agency SPA, which added that all economic and commercial activities will resume.

However, restrictions on international travel, social gatherings and religious pilgrimages will remain unchanged.

Saudi Arabia has recorded 154,223 cases of COVID-19 and a total of 1,230 deaths, with a rise in infections seen after movement and travel restrictions were eased on May 28.
