Saudi Arabia has announced its decision to hold Hajj this year with a limited number of people participating from all nationalities living inside the kingdom.

In a statement by the Saudi Arabia Ministry of Hajj and Umrah, the kingdom said the decision came in the light of the continued risk of COVID-19 spread and difficulty in achieving social distance among a huge number of pilgrims.

“It was decided to hold the pilgrimage this year with very limited numbers … with different nationalities in the kingdom,” the official Saudi Press Agency said on Monday, citing the Hajj ministry.
