Health warning for Hajj pilgrims

Health warning for Hajj pilgrims

Following international disease outbreaks the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) has urged certain groups to postpone their pilgrimage to Mecca.

Elderly people, those with chronic diseases (heart disease, kidney disease, respiratory disease, nervous system disorders and diabetes), immunodeficient patients (congenital and acquired), pregnant women and children have been advised to postpone the performance of the Hajj, which is expected to fall between October 2-7, and Umrah as a precautionary measure this year, for their own safety.
