Riyadh, June 30, 2020, SPA -- Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud chaired today a Cabinet's virtual session.
At the outset of the session, the Cabinet reviewed reports on the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic locally and internationally, the continuous evaluation of the pandemic, the latest treatment protocols, and the latest statisctis about Coronavirus cases reported in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The Cabinet was reassured about the medical and health care being provided for the infected cases.
The Cabinet expressed the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia's appreciation of the Islamic and international support for the Kingdom's decision to hold this year's Hajj with a very limited number of pilgrims from various nationalities residing in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The decision emanates from the Islamic Sharia which stresses avoiding damage before it occurs in addition to maintaining global health security. This decision also embodies the keenness of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques and HRH the Crown Prince on holding this year's Hajj in a safe and healthy environment following the Coronavirus pandemic that ravaged the countries of the world.
Acting Minister of Media Dr. Majid bin Abdullah Al-Qasabi pointed out in a statement to the Saudi Press Agency (SPA) that the Cabinet reviewed the preparations taken by all relevant bodies and sectors to provide best services for pilgrims. The Cabinet also reviewed the measures to be taken based on exceptional implementation plans as well as the controls to be implemented before and after this year's Hajj season.
