1 million Muslim pilgrims were converging on Saudi Arabia’s holy city of Mecca on Wednesday for the largest Hajj, after the pandemic hit. Saudi had decided to allow 850,000 pilgrims from abroad to make this annual pilgrimage, which begins on Thursday.
But the 1 million pilgrims attending this year is far more less than 2.5 million who attended in 2019, which was typically the largest world gatherings in the history.
This year, Saudi Arabia has laid some rules like, the pilgrim should be less than 65 and be vaccinated, tested negative for covid, and the pilgrims this year are chosen through the online lottery system.
Saudi officials have inspected the Holy site on Wednesday and emphasized on the public’s health at the gatherings.
