Over 12,000 Egyptian pilgrims receive medical care during Hajj: Health Ministry – Dailynewsegypt

The Egyptian Ministry of Health and Population has provided medical examinations and treatments to 12,741 pilgrims through its 24 clinics in Mecca and Medina as part of the Egyptian Medical Mission for Hajj.

Hossam Abdel Ghaffar, the Ministry’s spokesperson, reported that 871 patients were transferred to Saudi hospitals for further care—834 in Mecca and 37 in Medina. All but 24 have been discharged after receiving necessary treatments.

Amr Rashid, leader of the Egyptian Ambulance Authority and the medical delegation, assured that all Egyptian pilgrims are free from contagious diseases. He highlighted the ongoing collaboration with Saudi health authorities and mentioned patient visits to Al Nour and Saudi German Hospitals in Mecca for health checks.

Rashid also noted that medical teams are making regular visits to pilgrim accommodations in Mecca and Medina. They conduct daily educational seminars to inform pilgrims about disease prevention measures, ensuring their well-being throughout the Hajj rituals and until their return to Egypt. He emphasized that no children are included in the group of visa-holding Egyptian pilgrims.

Furthermore, the mission has held 1,289 awareness seminars at pilgrim hotels in both cities, benefiting 35,391 individuals. These sessions cover environmental engagement, room cleanliness, food safety, hand hygiene, personal care, and the importance of not sharing personal items.
