MINA: The Health Ministry said the number of pilgrims who received treatment at hospitals and health centers in Makkah, Arafat, Muzdalifah, Mina and Jamarat reached 97,262 pilgrims till Sunday.

During this Hajj season, the Ministry of Health has prepared health facilities to provide treatment services to pilgrims, with the number of hospitals reaching 23, supported by 147 health centers.

Clinical capacity increased to 4,654, while the number of beds allocated to intensive care reached 1,080.

About 25,000 medical practitioners were qualified to serve pilgrims.

Meanwhile, as part of King Salman’s guest program, the Ministry of Islamic Affairs, Dawah and Guidance has given great attention to the pilgrims since their arrival in the Kingdom.

The ministry takes care of visitors to ensure that they will receive all the services they need throughout their Hajj trip.

The Ministry provides them with specialized medical clinics equipped with all therapeutic and preventive drugs as well as emergency and diagnostic equipment.

This year’s program allows representatives of the 41 countries working in the Islamic Military Coalition Against Terrorism, as well as relatives of those killed and injured in terrorist attacks, to perform their Hajj rituals.

The guest program provides other services for pilgrims, including obtaining travel tickets, obtaining visas, as well as providing 24-hour buses between the accommodation and the Grand Mosque in Makkah. Other services include accommodation, transportation, meals, and other services they may need while performing their rituals.

The king’s gesture is in line with the Kingdom’s efforts to serve pilgrims, establish positive relations with other countries and open up broader horizons to strengthen ties in the Muslim world.
