Sources pointed out that the process of evacuating the dish in the Makkah Mosque from pilgrims and visitors comes within the process of sterilization and precautionary measures to prevent the spread of the “new Corona” virus, in cooperation with the Ministry of Health and the competent authorities.
She added, according to “Al-Akhbariya”, that this rare case comes after the decision of the Minister of Interior to suspend Umrah for residents and citizens, noting that worshipers perform homework in the courtyards and upper floors with reassurance.
The General Presidency of the Sacred Mosque and the Prophet’s Mosque had launched a pilot project to sterilize the handrails of the escalators inside the Sacred Mosque, which enables the elimination of germs created on the stairs by up to 94%.
The Presidency clarified that the project will be circulated to all parts of the sanctuary, and implemented through an innovative device for sterilization, using ultraviolet (UV LED), and works to convert kinetic energy into electrical energy without the need to make electrical connections.
She added that the device eliminates the DNA molecules of the germs, noting that the radiation from the device has no harmful effect on humans, and the device works to sterilize throughout the peace movement, and that the results of the samples experiment confirmed the reduction of the number of bacterial colonies from (160) colonies to (10) bacterial colonies.
