Applications for praying and performing Umrah at the Grand Mosque were paused earlier this month to allow pilgrims to undertake their rituals smoothly and finalize sanitization of the holy site.
As many as 20,000 Umrah pilgrims and 60,000 worshipers per day were allowed into the mosque.
Only “immunized” people against COVID-19 have so far been allowed to perform the Umrah and visit the Prophet’s Mosque in Medina.
