He explained that the first and second level countries are the least dangerous in terms of Corona injuries, and all pilgrims are received from them, and the third level countries have a higher risk than the average, and it is allowed to receive their pilgrims amid strict procedures and in smaller numbers.

Speaking to the “Ya Hala” program on the Gulf Rotana channel, he indicated that the fourth level countries do not receive pilgrims because the injuries in them are more prevalent and they are less able to deal with them.
