Usual coronaviruses such as 229E, NL63, OC43, and HKU1 found in human, typically cause mild to moderate upper-respiratory territory illnesses, like the common cold.  These viruses at some point attack people in their lives. Such kind of infections usually falls for a short volume of time. Symptoms are:

The Ministry of Health has taken an action which involves the testing for Coronavirus of the Umrah pilgrims arriving Saudi Arabia with flu-like symptoms. Abdullah Asiri, director of the ministry’s infection control department says that the necessary measures to limit the spread of this fatal virus were required. However, if you want to make sure it easy then last-minute umrah deals is the best in this regard. 

Though such harmful disease has not been reported out of the country, yet still there are places which do not have the equipment necessary to carry out the test for the virus. That’s why all the pilgrims who enter the Kingdom are tested. Since the medical inspection for coronavirus requires modern equipment and sophisticated technology but most of the pilgrims come from countries that do not have such equipment.

Until now the country has reported twenty-four cases in which two men, 48 and 58 years of age are the recent cases. However, 9 cases were fatal.

However, Coronavirus is another challenge which the Saudi Kingdom has faced but it successfully being taken care of.

Therefore, the Umrah pilgrims are requested to cooperate with the authorities to prevent this deadly virus.
