KUALA LUMPUR, July 29 -- Saudi Arabia's Ministry of Health has assigned a health leader for every 50 pilgrims during this year’s Haj that will be held on a smaller scale compared to previous years' Haj.
The unprecedented measure was set to assure the implementation of all health conditions in the aftermath of the outbreak of COVID-19 worldwide, according to a statement on the Saudi Ministry of Media's website on Haj 2020.
Each health leader will be in charge of making sure that his crew are following the health precautionary and preventive measures imposed by the authority.
The measures will include social distancing and moving among sacred places, for their safety and comfort, the Health Ministry said in a statement.
