Hajj pilgrimage to Mecca epidemic-free, says Saudi Arabia
The annual hajj pilgrimage to Mecca, which drew 2 million Muslims from around the world, has been epidemic-free, Saudi Arabia’s acting health minister has said.

Oil-rich Saudi Arabia, home to Islam’s holiest sites, engaged thousands of health workers to make sure pilgrims were protected from two deadly viruses, Ebola and Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (Mers-CoV).

As pilgrims performed the final rituals of the hajj and began returning home, Adel Fakieh said: “I am pleased to announce the hajj was free of all epidemic diseases

"Among its preventive measures, Fakieh’s ministry set up a “command and control” centre to direct the hajj health operation, and required every pilgrim to complete a health screening questionnaire."

Passengers were monitored by thermal cameras that detect high body temperature, and 15 isolation rooms were set up to hold any suspicious cases at the airport in the city of Jeddah



So, they set up 15 isolation rooms and had them fill out a questionaire? Yes, they scanned for fever coming into the country, did they scan anytime during the 7 to 10 days during the pilgrimage?

If at all possible Saudi Arabia, sounds more ignorant than the US

The proof will be in the pudding by the end of the month.
