Mecca, MINA – The Government of Saudi Arabia continues to take steps to anticipate the spread of coronavirus or Covid-19. Especially, related to safety and cleanliness in two holy mosques, the Nabawi Mosque and Al Haram Mosque.
As quoted from Bahrain News Agency on Thursday, March 5, the Saudi General Presidency at Al Haram Mosque and Nabawi Mosque also worked with the Saudi Ministry of Health to share health guidelines about coronavirus.
Including, guidelines to prevent infection and spread of the coronavirus. The health guidelines are displayed on an electronic screen in the Al Haram Mosque square.
The presidency has indeed stepped up its collaborative efforts with all government agencies to tackle the virus that was first discovered in Wuhan, China. It is to ensure the safety of visitors of the two holy mosques.
