by nevine

The cabinet media center has denied news on issuing a decision banning people with chronic diseases from performing Hajj rituals.


In a statement on Monday, March 6, the media center conveyed that it has contacted the Health Ministry, which in turn refuted such reports.


It revealed that banned travelers include people who suffer from chronic renal failure (CRF), overweight people, cardiac patients with advanced heart problems, tumor patients, pregnant women in the first and last trimesters, Alzheimer patients, and mentally ill people.


The media cabinet urged media outlets and social media followers to be accurate in spreading news and to contact reliable sources before publishing any information without any credible facts to avoid misleading citizens.
