CoronaVirus: Saudi Arabia, Iran and Japan Take Strong Measures

Updates |

As governments across the world continue to take strong measures to contain the spread of CoronaVirus Covid-19, people have started to panic.

  • Saudi Arabia has temporarily cancelled Omrah, a Hajj-like non-mandatory pilgrim in Islam, in Mecca/Makkah, and cancelled all travels to Medina/Madinah. These restrictions will, however, be applicable for only the foreigners, not citizens.
  • Iran has cancelled the Jummah, a weekly prayer in Islam.
  • Japan closed all the schools.
  • Various international health organizations are hinting towards a epidemic, which might as well turn into a pandemic.
