Osama Felali, chairman of Saudi Arabia’s Haj and Umrah Committee has said the number of Umrah pilgrims this year rose 10% year-on-year, despite the fears caused by the MERS coronavirus, Arab News has reported. He said the kingdom had not restricted Umrah pilgrims arriving from different countries because of MERS, which has killed nearly 300 people in the kingdom alone. More pilgrims would arrive during Ramadan, when more than three million foreign pilgrims are expected, said Felali.
