The first batch of pilgrims arrives at Grand Mosque after six months

After more than six months, Makkah’s Grand Mosque has opened its doors to the first group of pilgrims performing Umrah. More than 1.8 billion Muslims worldwide will rejoice as the first lucky Umrah pilgrims enter the Grand mosque at 6 a.m. on Sunday.

To accommodate a quota of 6,000 pilgrims per day, the Ministry of Hajj and Umrah has prepared five meeting points, including the Al-Gaza, Ajyad, and Al-Shasha sites, where pilgrims will meet and join health professionals on buses to the Grand Mosque.

Saudi Arabia is taking all the necessary measures to curb the spread of coronavirus, and thermal cameras are placed at the entrances and inside halls of the Grand Mosque to monitor the body temperature of pilgrims and issue alerts if necessary.
