2012 Haj season was free of diseases: ministry

Saudi health minister Dr Abdullah Al-Rabeah has said this year's Haj season was free of epidemic or contagious diseases thanks to a series of measures taken by the ministry over the past several months, Saudi Gazette has reported. These measures included the application of the updated health requirements on all pilgrims, early epidemiological surveillance at all ports of entry, including land, sea and air, through its 16 health control centres. The ministry also reinforced epidemiological surveillance teams at the Haj sites to take samples of patients and subject them to tests in local and international laboratories, said Dr Al-Rabeah.
