He said, "Thanks to Allah Almighty, all security, health, preventive, organizational, and service plans were drawn up from an early date, taking into consideration of the lessons learned from the exceptional Hajj season of last year 1441 AH, and implemented in an integrated manner with high professionalism by security men in participation with personnel in other government and private agencies according to a precise mechanism that included clarification of the pilgrims’ journey in a comprehensive manner and managing their movements since their arrival in Makkah, during their stay in the holy sites, their movements and performance of their rituals. This has been done by taking advantage of advanced technologies in a manner that ensures the application of all preventive and precautionary measures in place to confront the pandemic, as this year’s Hajj season did not witness anything disturbing pilgrims' peace, and no epidemic or quarantine cases were recorded''.
In conclusion, I pray to Allah Almighty to grant you best rewards for the generous care and attention being paid to the Two Holy Mosques, their visitors, and your wise policy that puts human health and safety first so that Muslims can enjoy performing their rituals in a safe and healthy atmosphere.
