Saudi Gazette Report

Mina — The Ministry of Health of Saudi Arabia announced on Thursday that it has an advanced system used for early detection of epidemics during the Mecca pilgrimage season. It was also confirmed that the pilgrims were in good health and no epidemic cases were reported among the pilgrims.

The Ministry of Health has a primary health care center, one of the most important health points in providing therapeutic and preventive services to sanctuary pilgrims. There are a total of 93 health centers spread across all geographic areas of the Sanctuary, including Mina, Arafat and Muzdalifah. There is also the Jamarat Bridge area, which pilgrims can reach quickly and directly. The health center has all the equipment you need, as well as medicines and laboratories.

These centers also provide many medical services to pilgrims suffering from injuries and heat stress, from general clinics to emergency services. These centers are available 24 hours a day, providing the services needed for patients with chronic illness through highly qualified medical and administrative executives who work on a daily basis without interruption.

At the entrance and mission headquarters, pilgrims receive health education focused on how to prevent heat stress, heat radiation, respiratory and skin diseases.

Meanwhile, the ministry’s 937 call center service continues to provide medical consultations and other services over the phone.
