I would like to extend my gratitude to the editor for giving me the opportunity to respond to this interesting letter. I would also like to thank the authors for their insightful appraisal of the study at hand.

The study is attempt by the author to assess the expected number of cases in Saudi Arabia if precautionary measures were not implemented at an early stage. Therefore, the results concluded that the peak would be much higher if these measures were not implemented. Thankfully, the number of cases of Covid-19 in Saudi Arabia was contained throughout the pandemic.
 
This is in response to the Letter to the Editor
