NO New COVID-19 Cases At Hajj And People Are Praising Saudi For This Success


The stark contrast for pilgrims performing Hajj this year versus others is evident in images going viral, and the safety measures to roll out the pilgrimage in areas hardest hit by COVID-19 have been applauded worldwide.

From two million people whittled to just 1,000, safety measures were put in place to ensure that at least some pilgrims could perform the holy passage, and with Eid Al-Adha drawing to a close, they have proven to be successful. So far, no new cases at the site have been announced and the pilgrims have thanked the leadership for its success.
