Makkah: Considering the risk of Covid-19, the Grand Mosque in Makkah is disinfected and sterilised ten times a day to keep the pilgrims safe. The cleaning process is carried out by 4000 men and women under the supervision of 200 senior employees.
300 washing and disinfection operations were carried out in the last Islamic month. 2,400,00 litres of high-quality disinfectant and cleaning products were used to ensure safety, reported Saudi Press Agency.
The mosque and the courtyards were perfumed with 45,000 litres of scent, and 100 fragrance diffusers to make worshippers feel comfortable. Each cleaning operation took 25 minutes and 500 appliances were used. Worshippers were not disturbed to carry out cleaning.
Over 1,205,600 litres of Zamzam water using water cylinders were also distributed to Umrah performers inside the Grand Holy Mosque during the first quarter (Muharram to Rabi Al-Awwal) of the year. In March 2020, Saudi Arabia closed all outlets for selling Zamzam water as a measure to prevent the spread of Covid-19. The Zamzam well has an ancient history dating back to thousands of years and holds high spiritual value for Muslims.
